Endorsed by Congresswoman Katie Hill!
"If we want underrepresented communities to have a voice, they need a seat at the table. That's why I am excited to endorse Sepi Shyne for West Hollywood City Council. As a young LGBTQ woman of color, Sepi has the vision and perspective needed to make a difference for her community," said Rep. Katie Hill. "LGBTQ+ people, young people and women of color are all disproportionately impacted by the lack of affordable housing, health care services and more. Efforts to change that must begin at the local level, and Sepi has the experience to take on those tough challenges."
- Katie Hill, Chair of Congressional LGBT Equality Caucus
