65th Assembly District Assemblywoman Sharon Quirk-Silva has announced receiving the endorsement of EMILY’s List, America’s leading fundraising group dedicated solely to electing pro-choice Democratic women to high office.
It is the nation’s largest resource for women in politics. Their grassroots community of over five million members helps Democratic women wage competitive campaigns and win. We recruit and train candidates, support strong campaigns, research the issues that impact women and families, and turn out women voters.

The 65th Assembly District includes Buena Park, Cypress, Fullerton, La Palma, Stanton, and most of West Anaheim.
