SNAP Endorses Susannah Randolph


1454949862.jpg Students for a New American Politics PAC is proud to endorse Susannah Randolph, a    strong advocate for economic justice and social equality, for Florida’s 9th    Congressional    District. SNAP will place two trained young activists who will work as    field organizers on  her campaign this summer.


 Randolph is the 2011 recipient of the Grassroots Honoree Award from U.S. Action and  a  member of the Netroots Activist Hall of Fame. She is a fighter for progressive values  and  a dedicated leader who inspires others to make a difference. 

She has spent her life mobilizing and empowering others-- from organizing students as an activist at Florida State University, pioneering the “Pink Slip Rick” campaign as Executive Director of Florida Watch Action, fighting for constituents as Alan Grayson’s District Director, to championing women’s health as a board member of Planned Parenthood. Grassroots organizing will be a major part of her campaign so that she can strengthen and build strong relationships within the community.

"Students and young people have always been the backbone of the progressive movement in our country,” Randolph said. “I am proud to have the support from such a strong group of activists!"

In Congress, Randolph will ensure students can graduate without crippling debt. She will join the fight to combat climate change and move the United States towards 100% renewable energy. To ensure all families can have a shot at the American dream, she will work to increase wages, strengthen social safety net programs, and protect a worker’s right to collective bargaining. To stop the predatory nature of Wall Street, she will promote the reinstatement of the Glass-Steagall Act. As a former Planned Parenthood board member, she will stand strong to defend women’s rights and expand reproductive health care.

“Susannah Randolph will be a champion for her district and for the progressive cause. We are excited to endorse her,” said SNAP executive director Mila Rostain. “Her organizing experience will make her a leader in Congress. With her commitment to field work, our fellows will be incredibly engaged in the campaign.”
