CONGRESSWOMAN KAREN BASS WEIGHS IN ON AD54 SPECIAL ELECTION
GAME CHANGER: CONGRESSWOMAN KAREN BASS PROUDLY ENDORSES COMMUNITY LEADER ISAAC BRYAN FOR CALIFORNIA’S 54th ASSEMBLY DISTRICT
CONGRESSWOMAN, FORMER CHAIR OF THE CONGRESSIONAL BLACK CAUCUS, AND THE ONLY BLACK WOMAN TO EVER SERVE AS SPEAKER OF THE CALIFORNIA STATE ASSEMBLY, JOINS IMMENSE COALITION SUPPORTING ISAAC BRYAN
“I’m proud to endorse Isaac to represent California’s 54th Assembly District in Sacramento,” said Congressmember Bass. “As I continue to advocate for transforming our child welfare system at the national level, I know that Isaac will bring that same fight, which is even more urgent now due to this pandemic, to our State Capitol. As someone who has seen the foster care system up close, Isaac knows first-hand the cracks many of our children are falling through in the child welfare system and that will make him invaluable to this cause. He will be one of the very few people with this lived experience to ever serve in the State Legislature. I know he is the right person to represent the 54th Assembly District, and I know the people of our District know it too.”
Bass, who founded the Congressional Caucus on Foster Youth, currently represents 94% of the voters within the 54th Assembly District, and she represented almost all of the same area when she served in the Assembly.
Isaac Bryan has also been endorsed by Senator Sydney Kamlager, Supervisor Holly Mitchell, Senators Lena Gonzalez, Henry Stern and Connie Leyva, Assemblymembers Chris Holden and Mark Stone, Councilmembers Mark Ridley-Thomas, Marqueece Harris-Dawson, Mike Bonin, and Kevin De Leon, Measure J Co-chair Eunisses Hernandez, Black Lives Matter movement Co- founder Patrisse Cullors, and dozens of healthcare, environmental, justice, labor, and other community organizers.
“I could not be more honored to have the support of Congresswoman Bass,” said Bryan. “Her example and leadership have guided so many of us for years. She is an organizer who has fought for our community at the highest levels of public service. I stand on her shoulders, and I could not be more grateful for her support.”
