Warren wins the endorsement of Black Womxn For, a group of more than 100 Black women activists. In a statement, the group writes: “[Warren] is a leader with a track record of taking on the predatory policies and practices that harm our communities and implementing structural changes that give power back to working people. She is a partner with a deep understanding of how racism and gender discrimination don’t just compound income inequality but are actually central to maintaining the status quo. She is a woman who is willing to learn, open to new ideas, and ready to be held accountable by us and our communities.” This endorsement comes one day after Warren was endorsed by Representative Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Massachusetts’ first Black woman in Congress. Despite this support from prominent Black women leaders, Warren continued to struggle to win the support of Black women voters broadly. Later in November, TIME outlined Warren’s efforts to increase her support among Black women.
