Meet Jessica Cisneros, Progressive For Congress
Progressive Democrats of America is thrilled to announce
our latest Congressional endorsement: Jessica Cisneros
We’d like to introduce Jessica Cisneros, a 26 year-old activist who has been a staunch advocate for her South Texas community her entire adulthood.
Her campaign website explains, “As the daughter of Mexican immigrants and a human rights lawyer, Jessica is fighting to build an America for all of us—no matter who we are, or where we come from.”
Jessica is running to represent Texas’ 28th District as an unapologetic progressive against Henry Cuellar, perhaps the most conservative Democrat in Congress. Jessica is for Medicare for All, the Green New Deal, and tuition-free public college.
She’s pro-labor, supports a pathway to citizenship, and opposes the NRA. Most of all, she will help progressives repair the damage the Trumpublicans cause—as opposed to Democrats in Name Only (DINOs), like her opponent: Henry Cuellar.
Cuellar is the opposite. Though nominally a Democrat, he’s no friend of the environment or labor. He supports Trump’s most divisive and counterproductive policies including the impotent, racist border wall. He favors the NRA over gun safety, and votes in lock-step with Trump more than any other Democrat.
Cuellar is a right-wing machine politician backed by the establishment. He has amassed a campaign war chest. This is one of the highest profile, and most significant, primary races in the country with national implications.
If Jessica wins, her victory will help us change the direction of the Democratic Party toward public service, and away from subservience to corporations.
Jessica Cisneros is an inspirational leader; and her victory would be a beacon for a generation of young people inspired by true progressives like Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Jessica exemplifies the better politics and more progressive future that PDA was founded to achieve. With your help, we can make the future happen now.
