Christina M. Hartman Earns New Endorsements from Women’s Rights and Labor Leaders

  ·   Press Release

This week, a group of women’s rights and labor leaders endorsed Christina M. Hartman in her bid for PA’s 16th Congressional district. The support from these prominent Democratic associations demonstrates the Hartman campaign’s continued grassroots momentum from key local, state, and national constituencies.

As 2016’s Democratic candidate for Congress in PA-16, Hartman won praise from pundits and locals alike in this traditionally Republican district. These additions to Hartman’s growing list of supporters, which includes Feminist Majority PAC and Women Under Forty PAC, follows the campaign’s recent high-profile endorsements from EMILY’s List and End Citizens United in late 2017.

Christina Hartman: “I’m honored to have the support of these key allies in our efforts to flip PA-16 from red to blue. When I’m in Congress, I’ll find the solutions we need to get Washington back on the right track and working for ordinary Pennsylvanians.”

Eleanor Smeal, Feminist Majority PAC President: “Christina Hartman has been a consistent advocate and ally in the fight for women’s equality. Not only has Christina fought to preserve democratic ideals in hostile foreign dictatorships abroad, but her work here at home with survivors of sexual assault, child abuse, and domestic violence underscores her dedication to the women’s rights movement. We’re proud to endorse her candidacy for U.S. Congress.”

Atalie Ebersole, WUFPAC President: “We continue to be impressed by Christina Hartman’s experience, dedication, and leadership, and we are proud to endorse her for Congress. Following her competitive race in 2016, WUFPAC and its members are strongly behind Christina’s efforts to finish the job she started with a resounding win in November.”

The newly released endorsement list includes:

  • Central Pennsylvania Building and Construction Trades Council
  • Feminist Majority PAC
  • Pennsylvania Conference of Teamsters
  • Transit Workers Union Local No. 234
  • United Steelworkers Region 10
  • Women Under Forty Political Action Committee (WUFPAC)

Over her career, Hartman has provided leadership in strategic planning, fundraising, and communications with organizations such as Church World Service Lancaster, an organization that resettles newly arrived refugees, and the Joyful Heart Foundation, a national organization dedicated to helping survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. Internationally, Hartman has had extensive experience in supporting democracy in countries from South Sudan to Afghanistan.
