These dedicated grassroots activists give a voice to the many voiceless in our communities as they organize and work tirelessly to elect Democratic leaders who reflect Democratic Party values and principles. I am deeply grateful for their support of my campaign for Assembly and look forward to working with these inspiring delegates to tirelessly fight for the issues we care so much about.”
