The following letter will be submitted to the Obama Administration:
RE: Obama Administration – Director of the Women’s Bureau
To Whom It May Concern:
The New Agenda is a national non-partisan women’s rights group with members in 50 states.
We are writing to inform you that The New Agenda does NOT endorse Kim Gandy for the position of Director of the Women’s Bureau. The New Agenda believes that while serving as President of the National Organization for Women, Ms. Gandy did not represent the women whom she was elected to represent. The New Agenda believes that Ms. Gandy used her role primarily to advance her own career interests.
The New Agenda would endorse the following candidates for Director of the Women’s Bureau:
Anita Perez Ferguson, Former President Natl. Women’s Political Caucus
Mary Beth Maxwell, Founding executive director of American Rights at Work
Ellen Bravo, Former National Director of 9to5
Robin Leeds, Winning Strategies
These candidates have represented and worked for women’s rights as opposed to their own self-interest.
President, The New Agenda
