For anyone who has an interest in the 45th Congressional District in California, there is big news in current events. It is thanks to the collaborative efforts of WOMEN VOTE! and End Citizens United (ECU) working together on behalf of Katie Porter. These two organizations have an expansive and crucial project in action, to educate and inform voters on the choices available to them.
As a candidate for the congressional position, Porter is more than qualified and worthy to handle the challenges that go along with a congressional seat. She is keenly aware of the socio-economic disparity within the United States today and does something about it.
Her profession and passion is as a UC Irvine law professor while at the same time practicing consumer protection as an attorney. She has experience in taking on Wall Street financial institutions and coming out victorious. The causes that Porter champions lie at the very heart of the American family today.
She is most concerned about the safety of children in schools as well as the general public, when it comes to assault weapons. This makes her a natural and obvious smart choice. More than that, her personal and professional integrity remain intact, as Porter advocates for reform regarding campaign funding. This fact is plain to see, because she refuses to accept campaign funds from corporate PACs (Political Action Committees).
As if being an educator and advocate for consumer rights are not enough deeds to send her to Congress, she also has the endorsement of some reputable colleagues. Senators Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris both support her candidacy into Congress, because of Porter’s progressive sociopolitical views and attitude. She believes in making funding for public education a top priority, while at the same time defending the Affordable Care Act. A woman’s right to choose and Planned Parenthood are also institutions and establishments under her protection.
The project ran by End Citizens United and WOMEN VOTE! has a specific target audience. It is intended to contact unaffiliated and Democratic women under the age of 30. Ideally, these individuals have voted in the 2016 general election and participated in at least one of the 2014 or 2012 primaries. In all, more than 50,000 different households are to receive eight different mailed pieces of information regarding Porter. Projected numbers indicate that more than 200,000 different voters are to be reached by the end of the campaign. This is certainly a impressive achievement, but really it is just another day at the office for End Citizens United and WOMEN VOTE!.
