She is the first Latina elected to a leadership position in the U.S. Congress and is the highest-ranking Latino in the House of Representatives. She is nationally recognized as a leading progressive voice in Congress for working families.
How does Linda align with Project 100's values?
  • Economic Opportunity: As a former labor lawyer, Congressmember Sánchez is a staunch defender of worker’s rights. In Congress, she is a founding member of the Labor and Working Families Caucus.
  • Equal Treatment Under the Law: Congressmember Sánchez fights for our civil rights and for full equality. She supports comprehensive immigration reform that fixes our immigration system, deals humanely with the undocumented immigrants already in America, and increases the security of our borders.
  • Healthy People & Communities: Congressswoman Sánchez is a strong supporter of President Obama’s Clean Power Plan. She is a strong supporter of the Affordable Care Act and will work across the aisle to make this law more effective but will not vote for any law that will deny health care for millions of Americans.
