At our December 10Â Membership Celebration,Â we will be honoring a good friend and supporter to the JP Progressives,Â our neighborÂ Henia Handler.Â
Henia has been a steadfast progressive, working for justice and equality in the community for decades. HeniaÂ remains eager to help candidates today.
When Senator Ted Kennedy needed more informationÂ about HIV/AIDS policy he called Henia. He knew thatÂ for decadesÂ she has been a passionate advocate for quality healthcare for all, and especially for the LGBTQ community.
When Senator Elizabeth Warren needed a JP stop for her pre-campaign listening tour, she called Henia and her beloved husband Joel. Henia’s living room helpedÂ launch anÂ historic campaign.
Who calls Henia? Only Governors, Mayors, Councilors, State Reps… and the JP Progressives.
HeniaÂ has canvassed tirelessly for progressive candidates. We hope that as JP Progressives, we can follow her example into the future.
Join Maura Healey, your neighbors, andÂ fellow activists to honor Henia on Thursday December 10.
