BOSTON, Mass. – Today, the NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts PAC, the political arm of the Commonwealth’s leading grassroots pro-choice advocacy organization, announced the endorsement of Brandy Fluker Oakley (D-Mattapan) for State Representative of the 12th Suffolk District. Fluker Oakley’s exceptional track record of fighting for reproductive freedom in both her personal and professional life earned her the endorsement of NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts.
“Brandy Fluker Oakley is unapologetic in her support for protecting and expanding reproductive freedom in Massachusetts. The residents of the 12th Suffolk District need a champion on Beacon Hill who will fight to protect reproductive freedom, stand up to anti-choice attacks, and work to expand access to essential reproductive health care services,” said Rebecca Hart Holder, Executive Director of NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts. “Brandy is poised to lead on reproductive freedom, and we look forward to doing all we can to help her win the primary in September and get elected in November.”
“I have seen firsthand how barriers to reproductive health care impact members of my community. These barriers cause harm to so many in the 12th Suffolk District and across the Commonwealth by delaying and denying access to necessary care. Several years ago, I helped a survivor of sexual violence navigate a complex legal situation to get the care she needed. The fact remains that no young person should ever be forced to go before a judge to get the care they need. As a woman of faith, I am pro-choice and believe that women should have agency over their bodies,” said Brandy Fluker Oakley. “I am honored to have the endorsement and support of NARAL Pro-choice Massachusetts PAC. I will do everything in my power to be an outspoken leader and remove barriers that limit an individual’s agency here in the Commonwealth.”
The NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts PAC encourages all residents of the 12th Suffolk District, which includes parts of the Boston neighborhoods of Dorchester, Hyde Park and Mattapan and Milton precincts 1&2, to vote for Brandy Fluker Oakley for State Representative in the Democratic Primary on September 1.
