Higher Heights PAC is proud to endorse Congresswomen Lucy McBath (GA-07), Jahana Hayes (CT-05), Summer Lee (PA-12) and Emilia Sykes (OH-13), for reelection to Congress this year. 

Higher Heights uplifts these four dynamic Black women legislators for daily doing the hard work on behalf of the American people in the halls of Congress. In these current politically volatile times, their hard work has not gone unnoticed, especially by those who do not wish to see forward progress. These Congresswomen represent our front line that needs the power of the #BlackWomenLead nation now more than ever to ensure they will be reelected by wide margins this election cycle.  Higher Heights PAC has identified these races as ones we need to organize around, protect and defend, and we ask the members of Higher Heights to rush your support to these women and our growing list of candidates today. 

These Black women need no introduction, and every day do all they can to fill the gaps, and we need to do all we can to ensure they have everything they need to win reelection. 

Let us reintroduce Lucy McBath, Jahana Hayes, Summer Lee and Emilia Sykes.
