The Wisconsin chapter of the National Organization for Women endorses Kelda Roys for governor
Madison — The Wisconsin chapter of the National Organization for Women (NOW) is pleased to announce their endorsement of Kelda Roys in her campaign for Wisconsin governor. Chapter president Lindsay Lemmer released the following statements.
“Kelda Roys is a leader in advancing equality and women’s healthcare. She started her career fighting for reproductive justice as the executive director of NARAL Pro-Choice Wisconsin. Later as a state legislator, she continued to champion issues of critical importance to NOW members. Roys is a tested advocate of equal rights and economic justice, affordable healthcare, and reproductive rights. She has driven positive, bi-partisan advances, such as the Compassionate Care for Rape Victims Act, which was the first pro-choice law in three decades. She’s worked to reduce racial disparities in healthcare, and has fought for equal rights for the LGBTQ+ community throughout her career. In addition, Kelda Roys’ platform includes paid family leave, early childhood education and universally available affordable childcare. These are critical topics for young parents and ones that are in deep need of legislative leadership.
With all of this in mind, Wisconsin NOW is incredibly fired up to endorse Kelda Roys. We are excited to support a truly intersectional feminist to be Wisconsin’s next governor.”
