Dingell, Women Colleagues Send Message at Trump’s Address: We will Keep Moving Forward
WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (MI-12) released the following statement after President Trump’s address to a joint session of Congress where she and her women colleagues wore white, the official color of the suffragette movement.
“Tonight I was proud to sit with my fellow women colleagues wearing white, united in celebrating the incredible progress women have made in the last century and pledging to continue to support the advancement of all women. We will be working together to ensure that every American has access to affordable quality health care, that we advance policies that create jobs, grow manufacturing, level the playing field for the American worker and protect the Constitution. It was great to have a young woman as my guest tonight who is energized and inspired to continue the tradition of opening the doors wider for the next generation.”
Dingell’s guest, Phoebe Hopps, is a community organizer who led the Michigan chapter of the Women’s March on Washington and whose family has been positively impacted by the Affordable Care Act.
