FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Solidarity Sundays East End is excited to announce we are endorsing David Pechefsky, Democratic candidate for New York’s First Congressional District. Solidarity Sundays East End is part of a nationwide network of more than 100 feminist activist groups focused on resisting the current administration, as well as the systemic inequities that existed long before Nov. 8, 2016. After carefully weighing the other candidates, we decided Pechefsky is the one true progressive who will energize the Democratic base of NY01 to defeat Lee Zeldin in November.

Over the past several months, we have gotten to know Pechefsky and his team well. His values align with ours. He  has demonstrated an unwavering commitment to affordable housing, single payer healthcare, women's choice, campaign finance reform, gun control, free higher education and compassionate immigration reform. He will engage disenfranchised voters with his unapologetically progressive platform. He will give people something actively to vote for. We are seeing momentum building behind Pechefsky, as evidenced by the following of young, energized voters from across the district who have been drawn to his campaign.

David has devoted his entire professional life to public service and building democracies at home and abroad. This campaign is an extension of that tireless dedication to public service.
— Bryony Freij, Solidarity Sundays

Bryony Freij, a leader of Solidarity Sundays, writes, “What makes David stand out from the other candidates is his broad vision for the Democratic Party and the future of this country. It has become clear to me that when he fights, it’s not about himself and his own campaign. David has devoted his entire professional life to public service and building democracies at home and abroad. This campaign is an extension of that tireless dedication to public service. David is battling for the rights of his wife and daughters, strong women in their own right, and for all people who aspire to a better future.”

Solidarity Sundays East End seriously considered other candidates. After thoughtful analysis, we can say with confidence that David Pechefsky is the one candidate who will emerge from the June primary with the following and energized electorate to flip NY01 blue in November. We need a representative to fight for us every single day and not serve as a rubber stamp for established or corporate interests. Pechefsky is the one to do this. He will be a leader in Congress, resisting the racism and isolationism of the Trump Administration. He will not only help to guide our country out of these desperate times, but be a force for substantive change and a more hopeful America.
