JEN PERELMAN for Congress 2020
“Vote out Corruption”
“Vote out Debbie Wasserman Schultz”
Attorney Jennifer Pilchick Perelman is a second-generation native Floridian, born and raised in North Miami Beach. She lives in Davie with her husband, Dr. Jason Perelman and their two teenage boys. From her earliest days of practicing law, Jen has fought for those who can’t fight for themselves. She has helped the poor and indigent receive proper counsel and helped young women receive a judicial bypass for an onerous process for their reproductive rights. Today, she Co-Chairs the Juvenile Justice Committee for the Broward League of Women Voters, works diligently in the community to restore the voting rights of disenfranchised citizens, and serves pro bono, as Of Counsel, to Probation Station to help people on probation as they transition out of the system.
Political courage. It’s in short supply these days. The Republicans are running roughshod over the Constitution and Democrats, alike, and it feels like there’s no one to stop them. It’s even worse here in South Florida’s FL-23, where, for more than 15 years, our Congresswoman, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, has received campaign contributions from donors such as the fossil fuel industry, big pharma, big agriculture, big alcohol, payday lenders, and for-profit prisons to ensure she conveniently looks the other way on issues that are vital to our Democratic values. It is a conflict of interest, plain and simple.
Why we need Jen Perelman besides ousting DWS!
Political Courage. It’s in short supply these days. In Florida’s 23rd Congressional District, it’s been virtually nonexistent for decades. We are among the nation’s highest for income inequality, cost of living, poor healthcare outcomes, and ever increasing economic devastation due to runaway climate change. We need new, courageous leadership in FL-23.
Conflicts Of Interest. A representative cannot simultaneously satisfy the desires of corporate special interests and the needs of working class constituents. This is why we are running a 100% grassroots funded, people powered campaign accepting ZERO dollars from corporations or corporate PACs. When elected, I will only answer to the constituents of FL-23, and not to corporate interests such as Big Sugar, Payday Lenders or the Fossil Fuel Industry.
For The People. We support Medicare For All because healthcare is a human right. Period. We support a Green New Deal because climate crisis is the single greatest threat of our lifetime & South Florida is Ground Zero for its catastrophic effects. We support comprehensive Criminal Justice Reform because legalizing marijuana and abolishing for-profit prisons will help break our district’s cycle of poverty, especially among people of color.
