The National Organization for Women endorses Democrat Mike Levin.
I am honored that our campaign was one of the first in the nation to be endorsed by the National Organization for Women. I will always stand for women’s health issues, including access to contraception and the right to make one’s own reproductive choices. I will fight any legislation or executive action that allows insurance companies to discriminate against women. I believe that only a woman, her family, and her doctor should be able to decide what is best for her health.
I am incredibly honored to be endorsed by such a preeminent organization as NOW. Their priorities are my priorities. I pledge to fight for economic equality by eliminating the pay gap, ensuring affordable child care, and ending violence against women. I always will be a champion for women’s health and reproductive rights, because what is good for women is good for America.
NOW has hundreds of chapters and hundreds of thousands of members and activists in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Since its founding in 1966, NOW’s purpose is to take action through intersectional grassroots activism to promote feminist ideals, lead societal change, eliminate discrimination, and achieve and protect the equal rights of all women and girls in all aspects of social, political, and economic life.
NOW’s actions have established the organization as a major force in the sweeping changes that put more women in political posts; increased educational, employment and business opportunities for women; and enacted tougher laws against violence, harassment and discrimination.
