WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Elect Democratic Women (EDW), the only Congressional Member-led committee dedicated solely to electing pro-choice Democratic women to Congress, announced its endorsement of Luz Rivas for California’s 29th Congressional District.

“Elect Democratic Women is proud to endorse Luz Rivas for California’s 29th Congressional District. As an educator, engineer, and founder of a non-profit, Luz has helped thousands of young women realize their full potential by setting them on the path to a career in STEM and instilling in them independence and self-confidence. She has been a champion for environmental justice, increased access to health care, and for protecting women’s reproductive rights,” said Rep. Lois Frankel (D-FL), Chair of Elect Democratic Women. “Luz has the passion, experience, and dedication that it takes to serve in Congress and we look forward to serving with her.”

“San Fernando Valley deserves a representative that will listen, fight for each and every family, and deliver opportunities for our community. I’ve done that in the California State Assembly and I look forward to continuing to serve our district in Congress. I am honored to be supported by Elect Democratic Women and look forward to working with them to get things done,” said Luz Rivas


Elect Democratic Women was formed in 2018 by Democratic Members of Congress with the purpose of electing more pro-choice Democratic women to Congress and higher office. We believe that democracy is best served by a diverse Congress that reflects the people they represent.
