In response to Judge Protasiewicz’s youth-powered win in Wisconsin’s Supreme Court election, NextGen PAC President Cristina Tzintzún Ramirez released the following statement:
“Young people are the future of progressive politics and the future of our democracy. Today’s victory for Judge Janet Protasiewicz proves yet again that when you invest and commit to educating, mobilizing, and connecting with young people on the issues that matter to them, they will use their voices and stand up for what they believe in.
“Young Wisconsin voters are pissed off and tired of their basic rights being threatened and taken away, and today they said ‘enough’ to extremist leaders like Dan Kelly whose only plan is to take us back in time. Abortion rights and voting rights are too important for us to stand idly by, and young people will stop at nothing to protect the future we believe in.”
