Democrat Ischia Bravo, candidate for the State Assembly in the 78th district, announced that she has secured three key endorsements in the upcoming Democratic primary on . Planned Parenthood, Fighting for Children PAC and the 504 Democratic Club have become the latest organizations to support Ms. Bravo.
Planned Parenthood of New York City Political Committee endorsed Ms. Bravo due to her 100% rating on her positions of important women’s health issues and her commitment to ensuring that all New Yorkers have access to free to low-cost healthcare. Fighting for Children PAC works on behalf of child abuse victims and is fighting to pass the Omnibus Child Victims Act, which would eliminate criminal and civil statutes of limitations for sexual abuse against minors. Ms. Bravo has urged for the passing of the Act and has pledged to be a champion of such legislation in Albany.
“It has taken ten years and Albany still hasn’t passed this bill. How many children have been abused in that time? How many children have been sexually abused because Albany is full of politicians who would rather protect special interests than children? One child is too many,” said Gary Greenberg, founder of Fighting for Children PAC. “I’m announcing our endorsement of Ischia Bravo who is passionate about protecting children from sexual abuse, and who supports the Omnibus Child Victims Act.”
The 504 Democratic Club focuses on disability rights and advocate for the inclusion of the disabled community within education, transportation and other important issues.
“I am proud to have the support of these three outstanding organizations that work so hard on behalf of women, our children and the disabled,” said Ischia Bravo. “We must do better. Our message that new and effective leadership is sorely needed in the 78th district is resonating. I am confident that voters across the district will vote for change we can trust this primary so we can finally get our community moving in the right direction.”
Bravo had been previously endorsed by Metallic Lathers & Ironworkers Local 46 and UNITE HERE Local 100.
