EMILY’s List is thrilled to endorse Karen Carter Peterson for Congress. A tireless champion for working families with a long history of public service, she will be a phenomenal representative for Louisiana’s women and working families. We know that the bravest thing a woman can do is to put her name on the ballot – something that Karen accomplished at just 18 years old. Karen has never stopped fighting to ensure that her community’s voice is heard in the State Legislature, and EMILY’s List is confident she will bring the same grit and drive to Washington as the next representative of Louisiana’s 2nd Congressional District.

— Stephanie Schriock, President of EMILY’s List

Higher Heights is proud to endorse Karen Carter Peterson for Louisiana's 2nd Congressional District. The time is now to elect more Black women to be at decision-making tables to represent us. Karen represents the possibilities that exist to create more responsive, and representational leadership.

— Glynda C. Carr President and CEO of Higher Height for America PAC

Now more than ever, we need progressive leaders in Congress who will fight for working families. Karen understands what workers need for a just economic recovery from this crisis, and she has the grit, drive, and experience to get it done. From protecting union rights, to fighting to raise the minimum wage, to working to end the gender pay gap, Karen has always stood up for Louisiana’s most vulnerable and marginalized. I know she’ll bring her fight to Washington for legislation that helps union members and workers across Louisiana.

— Stuart Appelbaum, President RWDSU
