Three years ago, I participated in the United Working Families Fellowship, where I learned how to knock on doors and have real conversations with my neighbors. It helped me realize that I have what it takes to run for office. Just last month, I fought and won against one of the most powerful machines in the state.
During this past election cycle, UWF took up this mantel again. They hosted a team of talented Movement Leader Fellows, who are considering running for office, working on campaigns, or building independent political organizations in their neighborhoods. This Fellowship program gave me an opportunity to be involved in progressive politics and laid the foundation to my campaign, so I am excited to see where this year's cohort is headed!
That’s why I’ll be joining the UWFellows Graduation Celebration on Saturday. Will I see you there?
