BOSTON – Andrea Campbell’s run for Attorney General today received the endorsement of Elect Black Women PAC, a national organization working to increase representation of Black women in municipal and statewide executive offices. If elected as Attorney General, Campbell would become the first Black woman elected to statewide office in Massachusetts.
“Elect Black Women PAC is proud to support Andrea Campbell in her historic bid for Attorney General of Massachusetts. She has dedicated her entire life and legal career to breaking cycles of pain and trauma so every family, worker and person has the same access to opportunity,” said Ruby Powell-Dennis, Executive Director of Elect Black Women PAC. “From fighting for high quality education and accessible, affordable housing to closing the racial wealth gap, Andrea has taken on the injustices our most marginalized communities face, and won. That’s exactly the type of leadership and political courage we need to make sure our legal system works for everyone.”
“As we continue to grow a strong, statewide coalition of support, I’m honored to have the endorsement of Elect Black Women PAC in this race. Massachusetts has never elected a Black woman into statewide office. A successful campaign would change that, and together, we can leverage the powers of this office to protect and champion every person in our Commonwealth,” said Campbell.
This endorsement continues the momentum for Campbell’s candidacy. Less than one month after announcing, she has earned the support of more than 60 current and former elected officials from every county in Massachusetts.
