RACINE, WI – Today, Trans United Fund has endorsed Randy Bryce for Congress, citing Randy’s working-class credentials and dedication to the needs of traditionally marginalized groups.
“Bryce is an everyday hero–a union ironworker who knows what it means to struggle to make ends meet, to struggle to access healthcare; that firsthand experience deepens his dedication to fighting for his fellow poor and working class people. From his time serving in the U.S. Army, to standing up for homeless veterans, and defending the rights of unions against Governor Scott Walker’s attacks, Bryce embodies the meaning of service. He is a champion for the rights of trans and queer people, people of color, women, immigrants, and is running to make our democracy work for everyone, not just the wealthy few,” Daye Pope, Trans United Fund’s Organizing Director, said Wednesday.
“Randy Bryce is a perfect example of how we progressives can come together across our differences, united in our commitment to equality and opportunity for all. Bryce’s commitment to workers’ rights, to investing in much-needed green infrastructure and small farms which will create good jobs, and his determination to ensure crisis services as well as job training and educational opportunities throughout Wisconsin and the U.S. are competently serving all who need them, including trans and nonbinary people, are just a handful of the reasons we proudly endorse him for U.S. Congress in Wisconsin’s 1st District.”
Trans United Fund is a nationally recognized organization that works to build the political power of trans and gender expansive communities and as well as support allies that will advocate for trans equality.
“I am honored to be endorsed by Trans United Fund,” said Randy Bryce. “Throughout this campaign, I have been a champion and an outspoken advocate for all people — including the trans and gender-expansive community in Wisconsin and across the country. I’ve been a strong supporter of Trans United Fund and their work for social justice since I participated in their Transgender Day of Visibility campaign in March. I welcome the chance to make progress this November in Wisconsin and Washington with their support.”
