My name is Pramila Jayapal. I’m running for Congress because now is the time for a bold, progressive fighter. The corporate special interests have their voice in Washington, DC. What Washington State needs is a bold progressive voice who will fight for you.
I have spent the last 25 years fighting to expand the middle class and lift up working people all over Seattle and across our state, and that’s exactly what I’ll do in Congress.
I will fight for a higher minimum wage because working families deserve a pay raise; paid sick and safe days so workers don’t have to worry about losing a job when they are sick or dealing with domestic violence; and equal pay for equal work, because women deserve every penny they’ve earned.
I will fight to expand Social Security and Medicare instead of letting the special interests cut them and break the promise made to seniors who paid in with every paycheck.
I will fight for cleaner air and water, and for a clean energy economy that creates jobs and preserves our environment for generations to come.
