October 7, 2014

Kyrsten Sinema for Congress

Phoenix, AZ – EMILY’s List, one of the nation’s largest women’s advocacy organizations, announced their support of Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema’s re-election campaign.

“I am dedicated to serving Arizona’s women and families,” Sinema stated. “That’s why I have spearheaded the efforts to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act and have fought to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act. I also oppose the recent Supreme Court decision that employers can dictate female employees’ access to contraception. I am proud to have earned the support of EMILY’s List.”

“Kyrsten Sinema has proven to be a smart, creative legislator who can get things done in Washington. And her work isn’t finished yet,” said Stephanie Schriock, President of EMILY’s List. “Kyrsten has fought to give women and families a fair shot by helping homeowners and championing the Violence Against Women Act. And she’s never failed to fight back against attempts to roll back the clock on women’s rights and opportunities. The growing EMILY’s List community – now more than three million members strong – is thrilled to have her back.”

Congresswoman Sinema fights for common sense solutions for Arizona families. She stood up when some in Congress tried to allow employers to deny coverage for basic women’s health care like birth control, took a lead role in fighting for the re-authorization of the Violence Against Women Act to protect women from abuse, and supports legislation to ensure paycheck fairness and expand child-care tax credits so working families can afford quality childcare without being penalized.
