Violet Kilmurray, Co-Chair
Women’s March WI
Women’s March Wisconsin is proud to endorse Cathy Myers’ campaign to represent Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District!
As a 24-year veteran public high school teacher, union leader, and twice-elected school board member, we believe Cathy has the necessary experience and character to not only win Paul Ryan’s open seat in November, but to serve and make a real difference in the lives of her constituents for years to come.
We know Cathy Myers will stand up for commonsense gun reform because, as a teacher, Cathy has seen the terror on her students’ faces during lockdown drills following school shootings. She will fight to keep our schools, communities, and kids safe by requiring universal background checks, banning military-style assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, and closing the loopholes that allow perpetrators of domestic abuse to get a gun.
With Roe v. Wade under attack by Trump’s Supreme Court takeover, Cathy Myers is the candidate we can trust to never compromise on women’s health because she’s been fighting to ensure that abortion is safe and legal since high school. Cathy supports Medicare for All and will ensure that women’s reproductive rights are covered by any single-payer health care system.
We know Cathy Myers is committed to represent all people of Wisconsin – including women, people of color, people with disabilities, Native, immigrant, Muslim, lesbian, queer, trans, nonbinary, formerly incarcerated and poor people.
Cathy Myers has spent her life fighting for us, so Women’s March Wisconsin is proud to stand with her now by announcing our endorsement of her campaign to represent Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District.
Candidates endorsed by Women’s March WI have been chosen by a 2/3 majority of voting members. Any staff working on campaigns have abstained from voting for that candidate.
