In these final 55 days leading up until election day, there is still time to learn about the candidates, and initiatives, running to help shape Arizona’s public schools. We are excited to share some of our 2020 endorsed school board candidates running in Pima County and a ballot initiative that will take action for students and teachers across Arizona.
The debate surrounding schools reopening amidst the COVID-19 pandemic has brought to light just how powerful school district governing boards are. As a voter, you help elect governing board members for the school district in which you live. School board members are the unseen decision makers in your child’s schooling and have the power to shape your child’s education.
August 26, 2020, marks the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, the amendment that finally recognized women’s right to vote. Although women should have already been included in the U.S. Constitution when it was adopted in 1789, it took suffrage workers 131 years to get the 19th Amendment ratified.
Last week we celebrated a historic night as many of our endorsed candidates secured their spots on the ballot for November’s general election. These wins prove that Arizona voters are prioritizing electing public servants that both protect reproductive freedom and represent all of our communities. Lifelong Tucsonan, Representative Alma Hernandez, and former DREAMer and State Senate candidate, Lynsey Robinson, both embody the current and growing demographics within Arizona. We at Planned Parenthood Advocates of Arizona are proud to endorse Hernandez for reelection and Robinson for election. Now is the time to look forward as we continue the work ahead that will ensure these nominees take their offices in January.

Every week, more and more polls indicate Vice President Biden and Mark Kelly are poised to lead a historic Blue Wave through Arizona this November. Now under 100 days out from the general election, the wave shows signs of washing a new Arizona majority into Phoenix as well. If Democrats in the House of Representatives and Senate are to take control for the first time in over thirty years, they will need their seasoned hands on the reins of leadership. Liberal champions of reproductive justice including Representatives Athena Salman and Andres Castro, as well as Senator Juan Mendez are prepared to lead the fight for a more progressive vision for Arizona. Planned Parenthood Advocates of Arizona is proud to endorse all three dedicated public servants in their primary elections TOMORROW August 4th and into the general in November.
In a time of declining trust in government, public institutions and the commitment of civil servants, Arizona needs leadership that they know will be dedicated to furthering the cause of reproductive justice and progress for all. Productive legislators are the best legislators, and that is why Planned Parenthood Advocates of Arizona is excited to endorse Representative Daniel Hernandez, and Senators Andrea Dalessandro and Lela Alston. Arizona’s challenges are many, and time is short, this is a time for legislators who get things done. Let’s support them in winning their primaries on August 4th and get them back to Phoenix to keep up their good work.
