Christina Hale Statement on Red for Ed Action Day

INDIANAPOLIS – Christina Hale made the following statement regarding the Red for Ed Action Day in Indianapolis today:

“Public school teachers need our help, now.  They have more than earned our support and an immediate pay raise.  Indiana has ranked dead last in the nation for teacher salary growth, and it is not good for educators or for our students’ education, either.  Right now, we need to do better by the people who have dedicated their careers to helping our youngest Hoosiers grow up to be employable and employed.”     

Christina Hale is running for Congress in Indiana’s 5th District. The district is an open-seat, and has been targeted by multiple national organizations as a priority seat in the 2020 election cycle. Christina was recently endorsed by EMILY’s List and the Congressional Hispanic Caucus’ Bold PAC.

Christina Hale learned how to get things done early in her career as a hard working single mom. Later she was elected to the Indiana state House in 2012 and quickly established a reputation as a tireless worker. Despite serving in the superminority for two terms, she was able to bridge political divides to pass important legislation supporting women, families, and small businesses. She made good on her promise to collaborate – every single bill she passed had support from Democrats and Republicans.

As one of the only members of the Indiana General Assembly of Latino descent at the time, Christina, who is Cuban-American, gave Hoosiers a new voice in Indianapolis. She most recently served as executive director of Kiwanis Youth Programs at Kiwanis International, where she has led programs locally and globally to improve the lives of children by expanding access to health care, education, and leadership opportunities.
