Progressive Massachusetts Endorses Chelsea Kline

NORTHAMPTON -- Progressive Massachusetts, a members-driven statewide grassroots advocacy organization, overwhelmingly voted to endorse Chelsea Kline’s bid for the Hampshire, Franklin & Worcester Senate seat, the organization announced today.

“Massachusetts should be a leader in progressive policy, and for that to happen, we need more people like Chelsea Kline in office,” Progressive Massachusetts said in a statement. “As a low-income single mom who worked multiple jobs and still needed food stamps to keep her daughter from going hungry, Chelsea knows what’s at stake when Beacon Hill cuts programs for people in need. We trust Chelsea to be a fighter for all working people and a brave progressive champion on Beacon Hill.”

“Progressive Massachusetts is one of the state’s leading grassroots organizations calling for progressive action on Beacon Hill, and I’m proud to have their support,” said Chelsea Kline. “Building and growing coalitions is how we achieve Medicare for All, full funding for our public schools, and 100% renewable energy. I’m honored to be a part of that progressive coalition.”

Progressive Massachusetts is a statewide, member-driven, grassroots advocacy organization working towards a future of equal opportunity, social and economic justice, consumer and environmental protection, health care as a right, equal access to quality public services, respect for all residents, and accountable and transparent government. Progressive Massachusetts works hard to elect progressive champions to public office, pass progressive legislation, and hold all elected officials accountable through grassroots lobbying and an annual legislative scorecard.

Chelsea Kline is a higher education leader and social justice advocate running on progressive issues like repairing our social safety net, protecting our environment, fully-funding our schools, supporting our farms and local businesses, and Medicare for All. In addition to the endorsement from Progressive Massachusetts, she also has earned the endorsements of the progressive coalition Mass Alliance and the American Federation of Teachers - Massachusetts. She is the only candidate in the race endorsed by a union, and the only candidate supported by statewide progressive advocacy organizations.
