“It means so much to me to have Shatter Pac’s support for my race for California State Assembly. When women lead, communities succeed. When we achieve gender parity and elect progressive women in all our places of power, we will see policies that reflect the urgent needs of our communities, especially working class South LA communities of color like mine that have been historically left behind. Let’s shatter every glass ceiling possible.”
