Barbara Lee

Barbara Lee has been fighting for justice from the very start. From joining forces with the NAACP to become her high school’s first Black cheerleader to standing her ground as the only member of Congress who voted against giving the president unlimited war powers after 9/11, she never backs down from fighting for what’s right. She’ll be the only Black woman in the U.S. Senate and is the experienced, accomplished progressive fighter Californians need now. That’s why people across California and the nation say, Barbara Lee Speaks for Me.
