Washington, D.C. – United We Dream Action endorsed candidates Rashida Tlaib (MI-13), Pramila Jayapal (WA-07) and Raul Grijalva (AZ-03) all won their primary elections held yesterday and delivered impressive victories. 

Juanita A. Monsalve, Senior Marketing & Creative Director of United We Dream Action, said:

“Voters in Michigan, Washington, and Arizona showed continued support for United We Dream Action’s vision to protect immigrants, dismantle the deportation force and advance a wide range of core issues impacting our communities. Congratulations to Rep. Tlaib, Jayapal, and Grijalva. These victories are a sign of the change that is coming as result of arduous organizing and deep community conversations. It’s clear the American public, across the country from the Midwest, Southwest to the Pacific Coast, is ready to stop racism and white supremacy. 

United We Dream Action is proud to have endorsed Representatives Tlaib, Jayapal, and Grijalva early on because all three are deeply committed to deliver on our Free to Move, Free to Stay platform for justice. They have shown deep leadership in fighting alongside us against the continued attacks from Trump’s white nationalists agenda. Now more than ever, we need leaders in Congress who will fight for a better future for every single person.”
