Our 2018 Endorsements

The Working Families Party is proud to announce our first endorsed candidates running for office in 2018! The Working Families Party endorsement is like a progressive seal of approval: it means these candidates can be counted on to fight for us on the issues that matter most, from fair funding of public schools and living wage jobs to ending mass incarceration and getting big money out of politics.
