Washington, D.C. – The National Women’s Political Caucus (NWPC) is pleased to endorse April Freeman for U.S. House in Florida’s 17th Congressional District.
Women’s equality is an issue of major importance in Freeman’s platform. She believes that women deserve equal pay for equal work and is a strong pro-choice advocate. “Ms. Freeman has a lifelong record of defending women and the middle class and there is no question that she will continue the fight when elected to Congress,” said Paula Owen Willmarth, NWPC Vice President for Political Planning.
Freeman has been involved with others on her home turf to advocate for passage of the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA). Her strong support for the ERA is just another reason she is an excellent choice to represent the women in Florida’s 17th district and women in general. “Freeman will be an excellent Congresswoman and a strong advocate for women’s rights, said Donna Lent, NWPC President. “We know she will continue her tradition of strong leadership and getting the job done.”
Freeman is a strong believer in grassroots fundraising and has raised record donations. Her commitment to her supporters is clear, vowing to fight to make the people’s voice heard and to pursue common sense solutions and policies.
“When it comes to working for women’s rights and fighting to help the middle class, April’s experience makes her the best candidate for Florida’s 17th Congressional District”, said Beth Lerner, Florida NWPC President. “We fully support her commitment to this race and are pleased to see another Florida district represented by a strong woman leader.”
The NWPC, founded in 1971, is a national, multi-partisan, grassroots membership organization dedicated to identifying, recruiting, training and supporting women candidates for elected and appointed office.
