Courage Campaign Announces Endorsement of Jovanka Beckles for California Assembly District 15
CALIFORNIA — Today, the California-based Courage Campaign, the largest progressive organization in the state, is announcing its endorsement of Richmond Councilmember Jovanka Beckles for East Bay’s 15th assembly district.
Eddie Kurtz, Executive Director of the California-based Courage Campaign, issued the following endorsements:
“Now more than ever, California needs strong, bold and progressive leadership in Sacramento. Courage Campaign is proud to endorse Jovanka Beckles — a true progressive champion who will be both representative of and accountable to the people of California. She is exactly the kind of leader we need in Sacramento.
“Putting Jovanka Beckles in the 15th assembly district seat would send a clear signal that our state is stepping up to the plate by rejecting corporate PAC money and sticking to its values, putting the state’s most pressing issues — things like fighting against big oil amidst an environmental crisis in California, ensuring affordable and accessible health care for all, and holding corporations accountable — first.
“With our endorsement of Jovanka Beckles, we’re putting Corporate Democrats on notice: progressives are building power, and we’re coming for your seats next.”
Earlier this year, Courage Campaign launched its third annual progressive report card, Courage Score, which dictates whether state legislators voted as progressively as their districts have on a range of core progressive issues. Those with the worst scores were put in the “Hall of Shame.”
