• Fighting for Fairness

    Barbara

    When she was only 18, Barbara was already lobbying Congress in support of the first-ever law banning workplace discrimination. Today she’s bringing that same determination to her fight to re-elect President Obama.

    A Jewish-American woman, Barbara knows one of the great strengths of New Mexico is its incredible diversity of people. But as someone who grew up in the 1930s and 40s, when segregation and discrimination were still commonplace, she also knows how important it is to continue to stand up for equality for all.

    “I have been a fierce advocate for social justice, promoting respect for others without bias and caring for people who need the help of the wider community,” says Barbara. “This is what I think Barack Obama stands for too, and that is why I am working so hard to see that he is re-elected.”

    Barack Obama is fighting to ensure that all Americans have the same opportunities regardless of gender, race, religion, ethnic background or sexual orientation. Will you fight with him? http://ofa.bo/gotv
