Liz Ortega is a longtime labor activist from an immigrant family with a proven track record of fighting for working people, and the relationships and experience to make an impact. Her undocumented mother brought three-year-old Liz and her family to California to build a better life for themselves, and her family’s struggles have influenced the values that guide her work. As the first Latina ever to be elected Executive Secretary-Treasurer of the Alameda Labor Council, her commitment to building solidarity with workers led to increases in pay, sick leave, and healthcare for East Bay workers. Liz Ortega has dedicated her career to fighting the working-class people of Alameda County, and we know she will take that fight to the State Assembly. The people of Assembly District 20 are lucky to have two accomplished, progressive women of color running to represent us and challenge the moderate Democrat establishment. Electing either of them would make the winner the first woman since 1998 to hold this position. We are dual endorsing Liz Ortega and Jennifer Esteen because we believe they are both strong candidates who will stand up for working class people of color in Assembly District 20.
