SUNRISE MOVEMENT ENDORSES DR. ARATI KREIBICH FOR CONGRESS

 

Glen Rock, NJ – Today, Sunrise Movement endorsed Dr. Arati Kreibich for Congress. The announcement follows Rep. Ayanna Pressley’s endorsement last week, and is further evidence of the progressive movement uniting behind Arati’s campaign in advance of the July 7 primary.

 

“When you look at the momentum behind our other endorsed candidates, what we’re seeing across the country is that people are desperate for candidates who will speak with moral clarity about what’s wrong, who’s responsible and how we fix it — whether that’s police violence, the economy, coronavirus, or climate change,”  said Sunrise Movement Political Director Evan Weber.

 

“Dr. Arati Kreibich is exactly the type of candidate this country needs in a moment like this. We’re proud to put our movement’s force behind her in taking on an incumbent like Rep. Gottheimer who is more aligned with corporate interests than those of his constituents.”

 

Dr. Arati Kreibich released the following statement: “I’m honored to have earned the support of the Sunrise Movement. As we act to reshape our country for the better in this moment of crisis, it’s clearer than ever that we need a Green New Deal to save our planet, create jobs, and help small businesses recover. I’m proud to have prioritized climate action as a Glen Rock Council Member, and I can’t wait to partner with Sunrise activists in Congress.”
