Pramila Jayapal

State Senator

Rebecca Saldaña, District 37

"I am excited to endorse Kirsten Harris-Talley for State Representative. Kirsten has shown herself to be the bold leader the 37th LD deserves in the Washington State House throughout her nearly 20 years of community organizing, non-profit leadership, and legislative experience. From her work as an activist to end youth incarceration and her leadership on progressive revenue reform to investing in community safety, I have admired Kirsten’s dedicated service to our community."

 

"I’m thrilled to endorse our longtime neighbor and trusted community leader Kirsten Harris-Talley for State Representative here in the 37th LD. The 37th LD is the most diverse district in King County and  Kirsten has always unapologetically called out and disrupted anti-blackness wherever it has been present. She has invested time, resources, and energy into anti-racist community policies and never hesitated to stand behind workers and immigrants in our fights for justice. She is a true champion for progressive change."

I know firsthand Kirsten’s dedication to building community power in the South End. She was a true champion on Seattle City Council for progressive taxation, housing justice, and public safety. I know she will continue to champion the policies the 37th Legislative District needs in Olympia."

 

"I am proud to support my fellow social justice advocate Kirsten Harris-Talley in her campaign for the 37th District State Representative. Kirsten’s experience organizing with our communities, our families, and our elders for housing equity and criminal justice reform have made this district a better place for all. She is a strong and experienced leader, and I trust that she will bring honest and accountable leadership to the position."
