Local Spotlight

Greetings Good People,

Since election season is in full force, I wanted to continue spotlighting politicians who are making a difference throughout the country. There have been a lot of first-time success stories this year, and the one that has caught my attention the most took place in Massachusetts. Meet Ayanna Pressley.

Ayanna Pressley is the first Black woman to win the Massachusetts Primary. She is one of the current Boston City Councilor members and candidate for Congress who is running to represent the people of Massachusetts’ 7th Congressional District. Her purpose for running is to eradicate poverty, build healthy communities, empower women and girls, and ensure that everyone regardless of where they are from or where they have been, have the opportunity to fulfill their God-given potential. Pressley’s legislative achievements have resulted in her being the top vote-getter in three consecutive elections. And she’s been named one of New York Times 14 Young Democrats to watch and one of Boston Magazines 50 Most Powerful People.

Some of the issues that Ayanna Pressley is tackling include Public Health, Economic Development, Environment, Immigration, Issues Disproportionately Impacting Women and Girls, Transportation, Violence and Trauma, Education, Housing, and Criminal Justice.
