Catalina Cruz Earns Social Workers PAC Endorsement
Jackson Heights, NY – Catalina Cruz, Democrat for State Assembly (39th District), won the endorsement of the National Association of Social Workers Political Action and Candidate Election (NASW-PACE) this week. Its members voted overwhelming to support Cruz citing her experience and record of advocacy on behalf of New York’s most vulnerable communities.
“NASW-NYC’s Political Action for Candidate Election (PACE) Committee is excited to endorse Catalina Cruz, a DREAMer and strong advocate for immigrant, workers and women’s rights for Assembly District 39,” said Brian Romero, Chair of NASW-NYC PACE. “As an experienced attorney and organizer at the local and state level, social workers and New Yorkers can be certain that Ms. Cruz will fight for those of us who are most vulnerable with passion and expertise.”
The endorsement of the NASW-PAC comes on the heels of several other significant endorsements in recent days including the Lesbian and Gay Democratic Club of Queens and NYC Council Member Daniel Dromm. Former NYC Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito and former NYC Council Member Julissa Ferreras-Copeland endorsed Cruz last month.
