Wisconsin chapter of the National Organization for Women: Endorses Evers for Governor
Madison, Wis. — The Wisconsin chapter of the National Organization for Women (NOW) is pleased to endorse Tony Evers for Governor and Mandela Barnes for Lieutenant Governor. Chapter president Lindsay Lemmer released the following statements:
“Wisconsin NOW is proud to endorse Tony Evers for Governor. Women’s rights have been under constant assault, and it’s more important than ever before to elect a governor who shares our values. Superintendent Tony Evers has been a tireless ally in fighting discrimination and standing up for vulnerable communities throughout his career in education. Tony Evers and Mandela Barnes believe health decisions must be left to patients instead of politicians, and understand the importance of affordable healthcare, including affordable care for those with pre-existing conditions, and the need for greater access to reproductive care. They are proven advocates who support equal pay protections, LGBTQIA+ rights, racial and economic justice.
Wisconsin NOW is mobilizing our members and allies to vote for Tony Evers and Mandela Barnes.”
