See the full list of Chelsea's endorsements below:

American Federation of Teachers - Massachusetts:
“Chelsea Kline understands that our students can succeed if they are given the resources they deserve. She shares our aspirational vision for fully-funded schools and libraries, debt-free public college, and an education system that focuses on true learning, not just testing. The teachers, librarians, higher ed faculty, and other educators of the AFT Massachusetts are proud to support Chelsea because she will be a strong advocate for our students and our schools.”

Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund of Massachusetts:
“As D.C. politicians wage attacks on access to reproductive health care and comprehensive sex education, we need leaders like Chelsea Kline in the State House to defend Massachusetts and push our state forward. Chelsea will fight for policies that strengthen reproductive rights and eliminate barriers to vital health care to ensure everyone has access to the care they need. The people of Massachusetts are fed up with politicians playing games with their health and rights and want leaders who will put people first. The stakes have never been higher in the fight for reproductive rights and health care access, and the Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund is proud to endorse and fight alongside Chelsea Kline.” 

Progressive Massachusetts:
“Massachusetts should be a leader in progressive policy, and for that to happen, we need more people like Chelsea Kline in office. 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.”

Mass Alliance:
“We know that Chelsea Kline will champion our progressive agenda on vital issues like environmental protection, education, immigration, civil rights, and economic justice. We look forward to working with her on the campaign trail, and to seeing her experience and compassion put to work in the Senate.”

SEIU Local 509:
“We’re proud to endorse Chelsea Kline for State Senate. While SEIU members are on the front lines serving the Commonwealth’s most vulnerable residents, they need to know they have someone fighting for them. Chelsea is the person we need in the Senate.”

NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts:
“In an era where the right to choose could be undone at any moment, and when many Massachusetts residents are still struggling to access comprehensive reproductive health care services, we need bold leaders like Chelsea Kline to take a stand for vulnerable people. Chelsea’s decades of political activism and her passion for protecting people in need make her the obvious choice for State Senate. We know Chelsea will be an effective and compassionate advocate for women and for working families because she always has been.”

Mass NOW:
"We are pleased to endorse Chelsea Kline for State Senate. Chelsea's commitment to the issues and values of Mass NOW make her a unique candidate and strong advocate for us and our legislative agenda. We look forward to working with Chelsea on issues of gender equity, racial justice, and economic equality on Beacon Hill."

Bay State Stonewall Democrats:
“Chelsea Kline has the courage, compassion, and commitment needed to be a strong advocate for LGBTQ+ people. We are thrilled to support Chelsea Kline, a member of our community and a fighter for equal rights for everyone.”

Massachusetts Solar Owners Association (MASOA):
“Chelsea Kline understands that climate change requires immediate action, and that the state must act to protect our green energy economy. Massachusetts lost 3,000 solar jobs last year alone because of anti-solar policies at the state level. We need dedicated leaders like Chelsea Kline in the Senate fighting for solar energy, for our environment, and for the green economy in Massachusetts.”

State Senator Jamie Eldridge (D - Second Essex and Middlesex):
"I'm proud to endorse Chelsea Kline for State Senator to represent the Hampshire, Franklin and Worcester Senate District. The Massachusetts State Senate needs more activist Senators, who know from firsthand experience the urgency of taking bolder action to help working families, challenge the status quo on Beacon Hill, and are deeply committed to supporting people who are the most vulnerable in society. Chelsea Kline's grassroots local activism co-founding the Badass Activists of the Pioneer Valley, fighting to support undocumented immigrants, protecting women's reproductive rights, helping the poor, and making healthcare a right, is truly inspiring. She is the exactly the kind of progressive leader that western Massachusetts needs."

State Senator Barbara L'Italien (D - Middlesex and Worcester):
“I first ran for office because of my experience raising a child with autism in a system that was working against us. When I brought that experience to the Legislature, we were able to completely reshape the way Massachusetts serves people with autism, and we became a national model. Chelsea’s own lived experience as a mom on a mission to create a better life for her kids and families like hers mirrors my story and the stories of countless families across our Commonwealth. We are seeing a new wave of women stepping up for public service, running authentically and boldly as women and mothers. When I leave the state Legislature, I know that leaders like Chelsea will pick up the ball and keep moving us forward.”

Northampton City Councilor Marianne LaBarge:
"I enthusiastically endorse Chelsea Kline for State Senate because she is compassionate, collaborative, and has the experience and knowledge to serve our district well."

Former State Representative Denise Andrews (D - Orange):
“Chelsea Kline is the best candidate to represent us in the State Senate, and the only candidate with the leadership and life experience to deliver positive change for our families and communities. Chelsea’s commitment, compassion and experience make her a powerful advocate for our district. She will be leader in supporting our schools, protecting our environment, combating addiction and the opioid crisis, and ensuring our government is respectful and responsive to all residents.”

Greenfield Town Councilor Otis Wheeler:
“Chelsea Kline knows Greenfield, and she knows Franklin County. She is by far the best candidate to advocate for our towns and fight for our progressive values. Chelsea’s compassion, courage, and deep commitment are exactly the qualities needed to bring about real progress and induce meaningful change. I’m proud to support Chelsea’s candidacy, and eager to see her representing our communities in the State Senate.”

Greenfield Town Councilor Tim Dolan:
“Chelsea Kline has made clear that she will be an active participant in all of the communities in our district, including in Franklin County. She is an impassioned advocate for public education, Medicare for All, and environmental protection, and will make us proud to have her representing us in the Senate.”

Orange School Committee Member Alexandre Schwanz:
“Our educational system faces many challenges, in Orange and throughout this district. With a budget heavily dependent on state funds, we need a champion like Chelsea on Beacon Hill with the courage and commitment to achieve full funding for public education. Educated at Greenfield Community College, Smith College, and Harvard Divinity School, Chelsea is a higher education leader who knows what it’s like to struggle - who knows what can happen when key programs aren’t appropriately funded. After the Legislature punted once again on fully funding our public schools, I am proud to join my voice with hers and demand more from Beacon Hill for our schools and for Western Massachusetts. Chelsea has my vote on September 4th, and I hope she has yours too.”
