SPLC Action Fund Endorses Maria Rodriguez for Pembroke Pines City Commissioner in Florida’s Broward County

BROWARD COUNTY, Fla. — The SPLC Action Fund today endorsed Maria Rodriguez for Pembroke Pines City Commissioner, District 3. Rodriguez, a local small business owner, has committed to working to expand access to the ballot box for all voters and prioritize the needs of younger generations and families.

“Given the impact local officials have on citizens and their daily quality of life, it is vital a community is represented by one of its own members,” said Madison Hollon, program manager of political campaigns for the SPLC Action Fund. “We are proud to endorse Maria, who has ensured she will work both toward more progressive policies while providing robust representation for the youth and Hispanic community in local government.”

The SPLC Action Fund is focused on lifting up communities of color, particularly those in the Deep South, who face systemic oppression, poverty and structural racism. To overcome these injustices, the organization is committed to reimagining the political, economic and social systems that sustain them to create a world where all people can thrive.

In pursuit of this bold agenda, the SPLC Action Fund supports candidates who share its commitment to fixing the deep inequities that plague our nation.
