"Talking with voters, it is clear that they are ready for women of color to take the lead. We want a fresh voice to represent us in the 7th district, and I am confident that Kina will be the one to take bold action in Washington. When a progressive grassroots organizer like Kina raises her hand to run for office, it is critical that the community lifts her up and supports her so she can make the changes that we want to see in our district." - Erika Bachner, River Forest Village Trustee

“From organizing for Medicare for All to fighting against gun violence in our community, Kina has been a leader in our district. The 7th district needs a leader who understands the needs of the entire community. Candidates need two essential qualities: A strong personal reason within them that compels them to run, and an idea of how they will implement their vision once they get into office. Kina has both; She has the fire, and she has the plan. It's time to send a new, visionary leader to Congress, and I'm proud to endorse Kina in this race.” - Arti Walker-Peddakotla, Oak Park Village Trustee
