Bonnie Watson Coleman

US Representative District 12

Take Action

Why We Support Her

As the only woman in the state's Congressional Delegation, and as the first African American woman elected to Congress from New Jersey, Watson Coleman puts a focus on often overlooked issues that are important to our membership.

She is an advocate for a living wage -- the idea that one full-time job should be enough to afford to live in the US. She is a fierce advocate for protecting the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act and supports wage transparency and wage recovery legislation so that equal work truly means equal pay. Watson Coleman is also a strong supporter of vocational and technical education and supports tuition forgiveness for vo-tech and college higher education.

Our choice is clear, and we choose Bonnie Watson Coleman.
