Arati Kreibich announced her candidacy for NJ's 5th Congressional District, currently represented by U.S. Rep. Josh Gottheimer. Kreibich is a neuroscientist and freshman councilwoman from the Bergen County borough of Glen Rock.


Glen Rock, NJ #VOTEPROCHOICE, a national organization that connects pro-choice voters with pro-choice candidates, endorsed Dr. Arati Kreibich for Congress in New Jersey’s 5th District. Arati is the first candidate in New Jersey to have earned the endorsement of #VOTEPROCHOICE.

Heidi Sieck, the Co-Founder & CEO of #VOTEPROCHOICE, released this statement: “#VOTEPROCHOICE is proud to endorse Dr. Arati Kreibich for Congress in NJ-5. Arati’s opponent Rep. Josh Gottheimer was one of just 10 Democrats to betray his party and vote for the Family Savings Act of 2018, which included an anti-choice provision to grant separate legal rights to pregnancies. Legislation like this lays the groundwork to make abortion illegal and demonstrates why we urgently need more pro-choice champions like Arati in Congress.”

Dr. Arati Kreibich released the following statement: “As a woman, a mom, and a person who has given birth twice, reproductive justice is deeply important to me. I’m honored to have the support of #VOTEPROCHOICE in this time when reproductive freedom is constantly under attack. I am committed to not only protecting every person’s right to make choices about their own bodies, but to achieving our vision of reproductve justice by ensuring that abortion is accessible to all.”
