Summer Lee for PA State Rep, Campaign Kickoff

On a snowy Martin Luther King Day, I ventured down to Braddock, PA and joined the Braddock Inclusion Project and about 200 fellow citizens to kick-off the campaign of Summer Lee, a 30-year old, African-American attorney hoping to represent the 34th Legislative District in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. The 34th covers some of Pittsburgh, and many of it's southeastern suburbs, including Swissvale, Braddock, Rankin, Homestead, East Pittsburgh, Turtle Creek and others.  Endorsed by the Pittsburgh Chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), Ms. Lee, her 'Ancestor's Wildest Dream', is running on a platform of inclusion and social justice and seeks to unseat a nearly 20 year incumbent from the Costa political dynasty.
