MILWAUKEE, WI – This week Women’s March WI announced their endorsement of Nikiya Dodd, candidate for Milwaukee’s 5th District Alderman in the upcoming special election. Women’s March WI is an organization which believes that women’s rights are human rights and we must create a society in which women – all women – are free and able to care for and nurture their families  in safe and healthy environments free from structural impediments.

“Women’s March Wisconsin is proud to endorse Nikiya Dodd in her race for Milwaukee’s 5th Aldermanic District,” said Sarah Pearson and Violet Kilmurray, Women’s March WI Co-Chairs. “In the private sector, she has spent her career as a non-profit professional in healthcare, education and community services. As a former Wisconsin State Senator and Milwaukee County Supervisor, Nikiya Dod has the experience needed- including legislative policies on economic development, law enforcement, environmental policies, and parks – and a strong desire to create and maintain a quality of life for residents in her district. Like Women’s March WI, she envisions all communities in Wisconsin to be a safe place where families choose to buy a home and raise their children.”

“I am so humbled to have earned the endorsement of Women’s March WI,” said Dodd. “While women have made many advances in the political arena we still have a long way to go before true equality is reached. Women’s March WI is key in harnessing the energy and groundswell we feel here in Wisconsin and across the country to ensure the political power of diverse voices are represented in all our branches of government.”

Dodd has earned the endorsements of former 5th District Alderman Jim Bohl; Mayor Tom Barrett; State Senator LaTonya Johnson; State Representatives David Bowen, David Crowley and Fred Kessler; Aldermen Bob Bauman, Cavalier Johnson, Chantia Lewis and Jose Perez; County Supervisor Theodore Lipscomb; the Communications Workers of America District 4, International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 494; and dozens of community leaders across the city.
