This election cycle started for me in August of 2015 in sunny California where we worked to help elect one of my heroes, Kamala Harris, to the US Senate. Last week she won and will serve as the second African American woman and first Indian-American to join the US Senate! Following my time in California, I transitioned to the DNCC in Philadelphia where our bold leaders pushed to make the Democratic Convention the most diverse and inclusive convention in US History. Finally, I returned to the battleground state of Florida to help break the glass ceiling for Hillary Clinton and any woman who's ever been told she couldn't achieve what she set out to accomplish.
I couldn't be more proud of the fearless women whom I worked for and with across the country this cycle, but its clear that our work here isn't finished. On a recent conference call, President Obama told our alumni group that despite the election results "...I'm still fired up and I'm still ready to go. And I hope you are too..."
I'm with President Obama! The campaign is now over and while pundits debate what went right and wrong I appreciate that we can all agree on this: We Live in an America Worth Fighting For.
Climate change, criminal justice reform, healthcare, immigration, women's reproductive-rights, the economy and the Movement for Black Lives need our attention now more than ever before. I'm proud to have stood with relentless fighters who believe in working everyday to achieve the kind of America we know we can be. I can't wait to continue this fight with all of you.
