“I am proud to have so many grassroots supporters on my team, and encouraged by the thousands of people who have stepped up to send a true progressive to represent them in Congress,” said Representative Sims. “The people of our community deserve advocates in Washington who are as hard working and passionate about this city as they are.”
“I will take their fight to Washington,” Sims continued. “I will be an ally in the effort to reduce gun violence. I will stand up to protect women’s rights and fight for equal pay for equal work. I will fight for investment in our public schools. I will work to give every school in every neighborhood the tools they need to ensure every child has a shot at success.”
