Alyse Galvin Endorsed by the National Women's Political Caucus
September 27, 2018
(ANCHORAGE, AK) — Today, the National Women’s Political Caucus (NWPC) endorsed Independent Alyse Galvin for the Congressional District of Alaska-At Large. NWPC was founded in 1971, and is a multi-partisan grassroots organization in the United States dedicated to recruiting, training, and supporting women who seek elected and appointed offices at all levels of government.
“The National Women’s Political Caucus is pleased to endorse Alyse Galvin,” said Donna Lent, NWPC President. “Alyse is uniquely qualified to represent her community. As a public education advocate and a former small business owner, it is clear that Alyse is dedicated to her community and will be an important voice for Alaska.”
“I’m so proud to have earned the endorsement of the National Women’s Political Caucus, an organization that stands up for women and families all over our country,” said Alyse Galvin. “Women and families in Alaska are struggling right now. Our healthcare is the most expensive in the country, our students need more support, and we have the highest rates of gender-based violence in America. Alaskans deserve a representative who looks out for them and fights on their behalf in Congress. Endorsements such as those from the NWPC underscore my commitment to the hardworking people of Alaska that I will be a voice for them in Washington.”
Alyse Galvin is a mom, a third-generation Alaskan, a community leader, 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.
