Marianne Williamson Endorses

Imani Oakley For Congress

 

Montclair, NJ — Marianne Williamson, former progressive presidential candidate, has endorsed Imani Oakley’s campaign for New Jersey’s 10th Congressional District.

 

“I am proud to have earned the endorsement of Marianne Williamson,” Oakley said. “I am excited to work alongside Marianne to create positive, progressive change and build community power.”

 

Oakley — a progressive organizer and pro-democracy advocate— is running for Congress in New Jersey’s 10th Congressional District on a platform that includes support for the Green New Deal, Medicare 4 All, and Housing as a Human Right.

 

The incumbent, Rep. Payne Jr., has drawn criticism for taking money from some of the worst polluters in the fossil fuel industry, anti-union corporations, and weapons developers while having one of the highest absentee rates of any Congressperson.

 

Oakley and her campaign thanked Williamson for her support.

 

This endorsement adds to the progressive coalition growing around Oakley’s campaign, including the West Orange Young Democrats, Catch Fire, Brand New Congress, Black Lives Matter activist Zellie Imani, Muslim community leader and civil rights advocate Selaedin Maksut, Maplewood Mayor Dean Dafis, and Mt. Rainier Vice Mayor Scott Cecil.

 

“Our campaign has always been about building a progressive coalition to take aim at the forces hurting our communities,” Oakley said. “As Congresswoman, I will work tirelessly alongside other progressives to win the future we deserve.”
