For Immediate Release: June 12, 2018
NARAL Pro-Choice America today announced its endorsement of Kara Eastman to represent Nebraska’s 2nd Congressional District.
“Kara Eastman has shown her courage, her tenacity and her values by stepping up to be part of the solution this crucial election, and every step of the way she’s shown she will be a champion for women and families in Congress,” said Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America. “We’re thrilled to support Kara Eastman and know she will be the strong voice for reproductive freedom that our Nebraska members deserve.”
“I am honored to have the support of NARAL as I continue to fight for women’s rights in our country,” said Eastman. “It’s time that we stand together to ensure that all women have the freedom to make decisions about their bodies without interference from the government.”
Kara Eastman was born in the Midwest and raised by a single mother. She has spent her career giving back to her community, both as founder of the Omaha Healthy Kids Alliance, and as a member of the Board of Governors of Metropolitan Community College in Omaha. Eastman strongly supports a woman’s right to make her own healthcare decisions. She knows that the decisions around reproductive health care should be left to a woman, her family and her doctor. Eastman will make fighting for reproductive freedom a top priority in Congress.
