The National Organization of Women (NOW) Political Action Committee (PAC) has endorsed Debbie Dingell for Congress. Dingell is the Democratic candidate in the 12th Congressional District that includes parts of Wayne and Washtenaw counties including the cities of Dearborn, Ypsilanti and Ann Arbor.
“Debbie Dingell is a role model for women and a champion for the issues they care about,” said NOW President Terry O’Neill. “Throughout her entire career Debbie has fought for the pocketbook issues that are important to women and families. From jobs and access to quality health care, to education and fairness in the workplace Debbie has been an advocate for us and we know that if elected to Congress she will continue to fight for our issues. “
“I am gratified to be endorsed by the NOW PAC,” Dingell said today. “Across the 12th District and the nation women understand the toll our struggling economy has had on their lives and the lives of their loved ones. They want and need Congress working together on the issues they care about and if elected, they know they can count on me.”
The National Organization for Women, the largest organization of feminist activists in the United States dedicated to equality for all women. NOW counts 500,000 contributing members and 550 chapters in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
Debbie Dingell is President of D2 Strategies and chair of the Wayne State University Board of Governors, to which she was elected statewide in 2006. An active civic and community leader, she is a recognized national advocate for women and children.
She resides in Dearborn with her husband Congressman John D. Dingell of Michigan. She holds both a B.S.F.S. in Foreign Services and an M.S. in Liberal Studies from Georgetown University.
