June 05, 2018
(Queens, NY) – Today, Congressman Joe Crowley (D-Queens, the Bronx) was endorsed by groups and individuals championing progressive policies in New York, in Congress, and across the United States.
“Joe Crowley is a champion for working families and is on the front lines combatting the hateful, un-American policies of President Trump. We need people like Joe in Congress to serve as an aggressive check on this president and to champion progressive policies, including Dodd-Frank and criminal justice, that make the economy and our country more just for working men and women,” said Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA).
“Joe Crowley fights every day to expand economic opportunity and strengthen the middle class. From his work on college affordability and apprenticeships to fighting to raise the minimum wage and expand access to affordable health care, Joe understands the challenges that American families face and he’s working to find solutions,” said Congressman Mark Pocan (D-WI), Co-Chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. “And when President Trump and his administration have attacked communities in New York and across the country – including immigrants, women, seniors, and LGBTQ individuals – Joe has stood up and fought back. Joe Crowley works tirelessly to make a difference on Capitol Hill and I’m proud to endorse his campaign for re-election.”
“Joe Crowley is the type of progressive leader we need in Congress fighting for working Americans. I’ve been proud to work alongside him advocating for a more just criminal justice system, decriminalization of marijuana, and programs that bring new opportunities to all Americans,” said Congressman Ro Khanna (D-CA). “I strongly re-endorse his re-election campaign!”
“Congressman Joe Crowley has been a champion for LGBTQ equality from his first day in Congress. From marriage equality to the repeal of the discriminatory ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ law, we have been able to count on him to speak out and fight on our behalf. His leadership will be critical for the battles ahead, including passing the Equality Act and ensuring President Trump’s transgender military service twitter ban never goes into effect,” said JoDee Winterhof, SVP for Policy & Political Affairs, Human Rights Campaign.
New York Working Families Party Director Bill Lipton said, “Joe Crowley has supported key WFP priorities including the Fight for $15 and immigration reform. We’re confident he will continue to fight for New York’s working families in Congress, and that’s why we’re supporting his campaign for re-election to the US House of Representatives.”
Congressman Crowley proudly represents Queens and the Bronx in New York 14th Congressional District. He’s additionally been endorsed by more than two dozen labor groups, Planned Parenthood Action Fund, NARAL Pro-Choice America, Make the Road Action, and the NYS Immigrant Action Fund.
