Leading Moms Group Endorses Pelosi for Speaker, Lee to Chair House Democratic Caucus
“Nancy Pelosi is a force of nature, a brilliant strategist and a powerful champion for moms and families. She has been one of the most effective speakers of the House of Representatives in our country’s history, responsible for passage and defense of the Affordable Care Act, saving the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (food stamps), and advancing dozens of other measures that boost the rights of women, the economic security of families, and the strength of our economy. MomsRising is proud to support Rep. Pelosi to serve as Speaker of the House.
“MomsRising is also immensely proud to support Rep. Barbara Lee to serve as chair of the House Democratic Caucus. She would be the first Black woman ever to serve in House leadership – something that should have happened long ago. Rep. Lee is a bastion of integrity, an independent and strategic thinker, and an unwavering voice for those who too often are voiceless and ignored.
“Together, these two extraordinary leaders can help put our government back on track at this time when we have an administration that violates human rights, spews hate, foments division, and pushes budgets and policies that punish working families, devastate essential health, nutrition and education programs, and undermine our economy. Nancy Pelosi and Barbara Lee are the leaders America needs today.”
