Alyse Galvin Endorsed by National Organization for Women Political Action Committee
October 11, 2018
(ANCHORAGE, AK) — Today, Alyse Galvin for Congress announced that the National Organization for Women Political Action Committee (NOW PAC) endorsed Galvin for the Congressional District of Alaska-At Large. NOW PAC actively challenges gender discrimination in American society by advocating for reproductive health care access, support for sexual and domestic violence survivors, and equal pay for equal work.
“Alyse Galvin embodies our grassroots movement to promote equality for women in all aspects of American life,” said Linda Berg, Political Director of NOW PAC. “She firmly believes in women’s reproductive rights, as well as women’s rights to receive equal pay for equal work, access reproductive healthcare, and to freely express their sexual orientation and gender identity. We are proud to endorse her and look forward to her victory in November as Alaska’s first Congresswoman.”
“I am incredibly excited to receive this endorsement from NOW PAC,” said Alyse Galvin. “As a working mom, I know the challenges that women face in their careers — challenges like equal pay for equal work, pension rights, pregnancy leave, and access to affordable healthcare. When I led Great Alaska Schools, I became steeped in the legislative process and know what it takes to create real change through law and policy. As Alaska’s Congresswoman, I will work to advance gender equality by supporting legislation to ensure every worker is equally valued, no matter their gender.”
In addition to NOW PAC, Alyse has also been endorsed by Planned Parenthood Action Fund, and the National Women’s Political Caucus.
Alyse Galvin is a mother of four children, third-generation Alaskan, community leader, public education advocate, and a former small business owner. A tireless advocate for education, she spent the last five years as a leader of Great Alaska Schools organizing parents, students, educators, and community leaders to protect public schools from massive budget cuts. In 2017, she led statewide opposition to the confirmation of Betsy DeVos as U.S. Secretary of Education.
Alyse Galvin is an Independent and the Alaska Democratic Party’s nominee for U.S. Congress. She will face Rep. Don Young in the general election on Tuesday, November 6, 2018.
