Nonpartisan Women’s Group Adds to Growing Momentum for Sanchez’s Campaign
LOS ANGELES – Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez announced today that she has received the endorsement of Women in Leadership (WIL) Political Action Committee for U.S. Senate.
“I have watched the work Loretta Sanchez has done since she was first elected. I have no doubt that she is by far the best qualified candidate in the Senate race–her experience in military and foreign affairs is outstanding. She is just what we need to effectively address problems affecting our nation. I trust Loretta to speak honestly about the issues,” stated WIL founding member, Dr. Louise Adler.
WIL fights to support access to reproductive education and healthcare as essential to safeguarding rights for all women.
“As the highest ranking woman on the House Armed Services Committee, I have worked tirelessly to ensure that women who bravely serve this nation have good working environments and expanded health care options. I will continue to be a staunch supporter of women’s rights in the military and in all of our communities,” said Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez.
Sanchez is also the founder and co-chair of the Women in the Military Caucus, where she has been a strong ally for women in military, helping rewrite the U.S. Code of Military Justice to include a meaningful sexual assault statute that punishes offenders and empowers survivors of abuse.
WIL, is a bi-partisan Political Action Committee formed in 1993 for the purpose of supporting and promoting women candidates to local, regional and state-wide office who are dedicated to keeping access to reproductive education and healthcare.
