SHERBURNE – The Fighting for Children PAC endorsed Jermaine Bagnall-Graham for state Senate in the 51st District.
The PAC’s mission is to make the Child Victims Act into New York state law, so child victims of sexual abuse are able to see the justice they deserve.
Bagnall-Graham has pledged his support for the Child Victims Act.
“We are always seeking out strong political allies like Jermaine Bagnall-Graham who are committed to reforming the state’s statute of limitations when it comes to child sex abuse to better protect the children of New York,” said Gary Greenberg, founder of the Fighting for Children PAC, in a news release. “The number of child sexual abuse victims in the state is stunning, where about one out of five kids are abused. With the help of candidates like Jermaine Bagnall-Graham, we are working together to make the statistic a thing of the past.”
Alcantara picks up backing from Fighting For Children PAC
The creator of a political action committee pushing for enactment of a Child Victims Act has endorsed Marisol Alcantara in a three-way Democratic upper Manhattan state Senate primary.
“She has a strong background in health care and understands the issue well,” said Gary Greenberg, an upstate investor and child abuse survivor who founded the Fighting For Children PAC.
Greenberg said Senate Independent Democratic Committee Leader Jeffrey Klein’s support of Alcantara also helped. “He’s been a friend to us,” he said.
Alcantara is set to face former City Councilman Robert Jackson and ex-Attorney General Eric Schneiderman Chief of Staff Micah Lasher in the Sept. 13 primary.
Greenberg said he donated $7,000 to Alcantara’s campaign and said he has loaned his PAC another $25,000 on top of the $100,000 he already donated to seed it because he wound up backing more candidates than expected.
