Rep. Mondaire Jones

State: New York

Elected Office: U.S. Representative

Candidate District: NY-17

Reason for Endorsement:

Rep. Mondaire Jones is unlike many of the people we’re used to seeing in Congress. He’s Black, gay, grew up in poverty, and doesn’t come from a political family. It’s part of what makes him a great legislator. Rep. Jones has been an outspoken defender of our democracy, calling for an end to the filibuster, for expanding and rebalancing the Supreme Court, and for restoring basic voter protections that have been eroded over the last decade. He’s also been steadfast in the fight for policies that uplift families out of poverty, like paid family leave, universal child care, free community college, Medicare For All, and cancelling student debt.

Rep. Jones has fought tooth and nail for major progressive priorities in his first term, and we’re ready to fight for him. We’re proud to endorse Rep. Jones as we continue our work together to pass vital structural reforms to our democracy.
