Labor Organizer Cristina Tzintzun Ramirez Endorses Joe Biden
Today, labor organizer, founder and Executive Director of Jolt — a Texas-wide organization dedicated to lifting Latino voices, and former Texas Senate candidate Cristina Tzintzun Ramirez released the following statement endorsing Joe Biden for President of the United States:
“I believe that elected officials don’t make change alone, but they do it with strong social movements behind them that bring to the surface the issues that have long been ignored in our society and they do it in moments of crisis when the pain of millions demands a dramatic departure from the status quo. This is that critical moment in history, where we will choose the future we want for our country. Will we choose to become a nation fearful and divided, or a country that recognizes its diversity as its strength and builds a country and democracy that represents all of us? I am determined that we choose the latter and that’s why I am endorsing Joe Biden and doing everything I can to elect him in November.”
Cristina Tzintzun Ramirez joins more than 50 Texas endorsers, including former Congressman Beto O’Rourke, Congressional Black Caucus members Eddie Bernice Johnson, Sheila Jackson Lee, Marc Veasey, and Colin Allred; Congressional Hispanic Caucus members, Veronica Escobar, Sylvia Garcia, Filemon Vela, Vicente Gonzalez and Henry Cuellar; Austin Mayor Steven Adler and Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner; as well as Senate Democratic Caucus Chair Carol Alvarado and State House Democratic Caucus Chair Chris Turner.
Biden for President has previously announced more than 3,000 endorsements from national, state, and local leaders, including current and former U.S. senators and representatives, governors, state elected officials, community leaders, and national security professionals.
