Ayanna Pressley


A fighter for Boston communities

Rep. Ayanna Pressley (MA-07), a former at-large member of the Boston City Council, is the first African-American woman elected to Congress from Massachusetts. The daughter of a tenants’ rights organizer, she has long fought to tackle inequities and disparities in the communities she represents.

An important voice on reform in Congress

Pressley is a firm advocate for voting rights and campaign finance reform, as well as a co-sponsor of H.R. 1. She praised H.R. 1 as “bold, transformative legislation which seeks to restore the people’s faith that the American government works for the public interest, not special interests.” She does not accept corporate PAC donations and serves on the House Committee on Oversight and Reform.

Reformer at Risk?

No Corporate PAC?
