Stand with immigrants

Who Are these Folks?

Candidates UWDA PAC has endorsed because they’ve demonstrated commitment to a vision in which all immigrants and people of color can thrive and pledged to our #FreeToStay platform for immigrant justice.

Candidates actively harming our communities and are responsible for allowing Trump to carry out his white supremacist agenda.

Although there are candidates on here that we have not endorsed, getting them elected will chip away at Trump’s enablers. We need to stop Trump’s Evil Amigos!
