“I am proud to support Rebecca because she consistently advocates for equity and justice for all. She is committed to improving the lives of children, youth and families in our community and across the state. On issues that matter to me, such as reproductive choice, LGBT rights, responsible gun legislation, racial justice and gender equity, Rebecca is the candidate that I believe will best represent our community.”

“Last spring, I began my political journey after a Shabbat dinner at a dear friend’s home. That night I committed to running for the City Council seat that I currently hold. From that day on, she stood by my side as my co-campaign manager and friend. Today, it is my turn to stand by her and endorse my friend Rebecca Kislak to be the next State Representative for District 4.

I am supporting Rebecca because I know she believes in fighting for progressive change. She is a mother, a public service attorney, and a tenacious healthcare advocate. As a Providence Public School parent, she will advocate for equity and for the resources to provide every child with a strong education. She has advocated for economic, racial and reproductive justice throughout her career.

Rebecca’s track record at the state house has proven her ability to lead. When she was the President of Rhode Island’s chapter of the National Organization for Women she helped pass legislation to remove guns from domestic violence offenders and was part of the team of legislators and advocates that won earned sick days for Rhode Island working families. I know I can work alongside Rebecca to advocate for Providence.

Rebecca Kislak is a tenacious and active community advocate, and that is why I am honored to support her candidacy to be the next District 4 State Representative.”

– Nirva LaFortune, Providence City Council
