BOSTON — Chinese Progressive Political Action (CPPA) today endorsed Ed Markey for U.S. Senate. The announcement comes as mail-in and early voting begins in the primary election, and the Markey campaign is building on its strong momentum.
“We support Markey because he has been a steadfast advocate for progressive change, and we know he will continue to be a champion for environmental justice in the national response to climate change,” CPPA said.
“I am so grateful for this endorsement from CPPA. Their grassroots work in Boston has led to real, meaningful change across the city, and I am eager to continue working in the Senate to share that progress with Chinese communities across the state,” said Senator Ed Markey.
CPPA is a 501c4 organization based in the Greater Boston Area and focused on building the collective political power of the Chinese community. CPPA strives to bring full equality to communities, integrating grassroots organizing and civic action to promote the community’s agenda before, during, and after elections.
CPPA is committed to engaging communities to vote-by-mail during this pandemic, providing assistance so every citizen is able to voice their political preferences in a safe, health-conscious way.
Ed Markey has served in the United States Senate since winning the special election in 2013 and has amassed a deep record on environmental, racial justice, gun safety, and consumer protection issues. Raised in Malden, Ed Markey has always stood up for the priorities of Massachusetts.
