INDIVIDUALS

Former Boston Mayor

“Nika’s remarkable leadership as a representative has helped to affect racial and social justice for her district. I know she will do the same for the Second Suffolk District. Her record shows a consistent focus on anti-racism, equity, and justice for those who need it most like our many incarcerated and justice-involved loved ones and children, as well as working with us to identify and articulate what is fair and equitable in our state legislation. This is why I am endorsing Nika for Senate.”

State Representative, 9th Suffolk

“Over the past 30 years, it has been one of the delights of my life to watch Nika learn and grow and lead the way leaders should lead. In her work as State Rep, and long before in her work across this city and beyond, Nika has led with the power of love and not the love of power. She makes sure that youth leadership is central to the work of justice and understands that when our world is in their hands, our world is in good hands. We need Nika’s leadership in the Senate, because as long as she is there, I know our world is in good hands.”

“Nika has dedicated her time and energy to mentoring young women of color coming into elected office. Her ability to teach while learning is inspiring and a characteristic we should all want in our State Senator. I am thrilled to endorse her, not just for me but for US.”

Tito Jackson

Former Boston City Councilor

“Nika has dedicated her time and energy to mentoring young women of color coming into elected office. Her ability to teach while learning is inspiring and a characteristic we should all want in our State Senator. I am thrilled to endorse her, not just for me but for US.”

Kenzie Bok

Boston City Councilor

“Nika is a housing champion, fighting for more affordable housing for all, and paying special attention to our public housing communities, which are too often neglected. Whether it’s youth jobs or mobility shuttle service or food access, our affordable housing residents come first with Nika. As her colleague representing Mission Hill at the City level, I love having Nika fighting for us at the State House. We need her in the State Senate.”

Russell Holmes

State Representative, 6th Suffolk

“Nika has worked with business leaders, particularly with our Main Streets organizations to meet their hiring needs and to employ local youth and young adults, especially those living in public and affordable housing.
