National Leading From the Inside Out Alum
On the weekend Donald Trump was visiting Phoenix to campaign for Republican Senate candidate Rep. Martha McSally, young, progressive, Latinx volunteers flooded the city’s suburbs in droves, going door to door, often in bright pink Planned Parenthood T-shirts, canvassing for Kyrsten Sinema.
“It’s like when we had to vote for either Trump or Hillary,” Angelica Romero, 21, the vice president of the Planned Parenthood student activist group on the Arizona State University campus said. “Hillary wasn’t the perfect candidate, there was a lot I disagreed with her on, but are we gonna vote for Trump? No. Are we gonna vote for McSally? No.”
According to Planned Parenthood Action Fund Vice President Dawn Laguens her organization is “proud to support” Sinema, citing her background on abortion rights and health care. “We’ve been proud to defend people’s health and rights alongside Kyrsten in the House and look forward to continuing that work together in the Senate.” .
