Ruth’s List Florida Endorses Anna V. Eskamani For Florida House District 47

Orlando, FL — Ruth’s List Florida, the state’s only resource dedicated to recruiting and aiding Democratic women candidates, announced their endorsement of Anna V. Eskamani in the House District 47 race, lauding her ongoing commitment to stand up for Florida women and families.

“Anna is a lifelong advocate for reproductive health and women’s rights. She is a dynamic leader who has already proven herself to be a passionate and effective advocate,” said Marley Wilkes, Ruth’s List Florida Executive Director. “The Ruth’s List community – now tens of thousands members strong – is excited to support her candidacy.”

“I am grateful to the grassroots aid Ruth’s List Florida provides Democratic women in Florida,” said Eskamani. “My commitment to women and families is unmatched and driven by my own personal story as an Orlando native and daughter of immigrants who lost her Mom to cancer at age thirteen. Women face deep disparities compared to our male counterparts, and as more allegations of sexual harassment and assault are made across the country and right here in Florida, the need for more women’s voices in Tallahassee has become even more apparent and important.”

Ruth’s List Florida is dedicated to building a progressive Florida by recruiting and assisting Democratic women leaders to the State Cabinet, Legislature, County Commissions, City Councils and other key positions in Florida. Since 2008, Ruth’s List Florida has 65+ victories and has raised more than $4,000,000 to support Democratic women running for state and local office in Florida.
