BOSTON, Mass.—Mass NOW, a leading organization on women’s issues that works to advance the equal status of women and girls in all aspects of their lives, endorsed Deb Goldberg for Treasurer today.

Donna Denoncourt & Nancy Rosenblum, Mass NOW PAC Co-Chairs said, “Mass. NOW is proud to endorse Deb Goldberg for State Treasurer. As an Overseer of Planned Parenthood and a Selectman in the Town of Brookline, she has been engaged in the challenges and issues facing women’s right to privacy, wage equality and choice. We know that she will strive to implement good social policy in the Treasurer’s office and be an ally to the Commonwealth’s most marginalized populations.”
