the amazing @acampoverdi !!! Next week on April 4th we have an opportunity to vote her into congress for District 34. @yasminezara worded it so well here :
As we all look for ways to channel our activism and change the landscape of those in power in Washington, we know diversity in Congress is key. Women make up less than 20% of Congress. As a young Latina woman, Alejandra Campoverdi has precisely the kind of energy that DC needs. Alejandra is running for the 34th district of Congress in a special primary election on April 4th. This district includes Highland Park, Boyle Heights, Cypress Park, Eagle Rock, Downtown, Little Tokyo, Chinatown, Koreatown, Mt. Washington, Montecito Heights and more. In Alejandra, there is an opportunity to have a brilliant representative voice in Congress.
Alejandra’s life inspires. She can speak firsthand about what it means to be raised by a single mom, to depend on welfare, to work her way to Harvard and come out with massive debt. She worked in Obama’s West Wing as a staffer and then as the first ever White House Director of Hispanic Media. Here is an opportunity to find out first hand why, in a field of excellent choices, she is the exceptional one. #alejandracampoverdi #CA34 #Congress
