LOWELL, Mass. (Dec. 5, 2019) – Democrat Lori Trahan proudly announced the endorsement of JStreetPAC, the nation’s first political action committee dedicated to promoting American leadership in resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
JStreetPAC’s mission is to support candidates who support progressive, diplomacy-first solutions to promote peace in the Middle East and security for Israel.
“Representative Trahan understands the importance of strong diplomacy, fights for democratic values and is committed to promoting peace, justice and self-determination for both Israelis and Palestinians,” said J Street’s Vice President for Political Affairs Ben Shnider. “At a time when the far-right agenda of the Trump administration is doing tremendous damage to US interests and credibility in the Middle East, we need pro-Israel, pro-peace leaders like Rep. Trahan, who are pushing for a very different vision of American leadership. JStreetPAC is proud to endorse the congresswoman, and our members are excited to do all that we can to help re-elect her to Congress in 2020.”
Trahan said she was humbled by the endorsement.
“I am honored to have earned the support of J Street as I seek re-election in Massachusetts’ 3rd Congressional District. Our shared values and commitment to working on a peaceful resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict will be critical as Congress considers key issues surrounding the strengthening of our relationship with Israel in the years to come. I look forward to partnering closely with J Street to promote peace in the Middle East.”
