Endorsements

Organizations

  • Profiteers and the ultra-wealthy have dominated power in the Massachusetts statehouse for too long. We're proud to back the only gubernatorial candidate who will fight against these monied interests and for the multiracial working class. Sonia Chang-Díaz will govern alongside us to ensure everyday people are put first.

    - Brooke Adams, People’s Action Movement Politics Director
  • Our members see themselves in Sonia, in her fight, in her story, in her vision. She earned our trust by being with us in the trenches. We knew we could always count on her, not just to fight for us, but to listen and work together. We are very excited, and inspired by her candidacy for Governor and what her leadership could do for working families across the state.

    - Eliud Alcala, Chair of the Neighbor to Neighbor Action Fund

State Elected Officials

  • I’ve seen Sonia’s leadership in the State Senate, and I know just how effective she is at achieving results. She not only has the vision we need in our next Governor, but the track record of delivering for Massachusetts families on issues ranging from education reform, to criminal justice reform, to affordable housing, to public transit, and more. Sonia not only fights for bold changes, but she also delivers. She’s the Governor we need.

    - Adam Gomez, MA State Senator, Hampden
  • Sonia has repeatedly delivered results for Massachusetts residents, especially when it matters most. A lot of people are strong in terms of their beliefs, their values, their rhetoric. But actions broadcast the true strength of a leader — and Sonia has consistently stood up for what is just and for the structural changes that give every person in our Commonwealth a better life. She leads with brilliance and with heart, and, like all great leaders, puts the interests of the people before her own.

School Committee Members

  • Thanks to Sonia’s steadfast leadership and fearless advocacy, generations of Massachusetts kids are going to get the resources they need for a quality education. Even when education funding reform looked unlikely, Sonia never wavered. Instead, she came together with educators, parents, and students from every community in our state, heard and amplified our voices, and led the fight for all our kids. She’s already shown what real change looks like, and a Chang-Díaz administration will deliver it for all of us.
