Congratulations Massachusetts!

Posted on by Joy Mosenfelder

Yesterday’s election ushered in groundbreaking new candidates across our country, marking a history of firsts in many state and local districts. Here at Victory Programs, two races in particular held special meaning for us.

Congratulations to Congresswoman-Elect Ayanna Pressley, for making history as the first black woman from Massachusetts to serve in Washington! Ayanna has shown up for the Victory Programs’ community time and again during her career as an at-large member of Boston’s City Council and has a strong track record supporting fair housing initiatives, substance use disorder treatment, and HIV/AIDS services.

And congratulations to Freedom for All Massachusetts on organizing a record-setting grassroots campaign to preserve transgender nondiscrimination protections here in Massachusetts by building a strong coalition of community groups, businesses, and individuals to get out the vote on Question 3. An essential victory, hard fought, leading to a well-earned landslide win for human dignity and respect.
