Daybreak PAC announces first corporate-free candidate endorsement: Fatima Iqbal-Zubair for Assembly

On Monday, April 5 Daybreak Political Action announced its first endorsement for the 2022 election cycle. Fatima Iqbal-Zubair (Assembly District 64), an educator, immigrant, and mother, would be the first woman elected to represent her assembly district, and the first Muslim elected to the California State Assembly.

“Fatima represents the future of California that we all deserve,” said Daybreak Executive Director Jackie Fielder. “We’re proud to throw our full support for her corporate- and fossil-free campaign.”

Fatima Iqbal-Zubair’s platform emphasizes quality public education, dismantling environmental racism, ensuring housing as a human right, and immigration justice.

“I'm so honored to be DayBreak PAC's first endorsement,” said Iqbal-Zubair. “When our state has been failing our most marginalized and our working class, there is absolutely no time to wait and there is absolutely no time for incrementalism. I'm honored to be a small part of this larger movement to restore our human right to thrive to all in California.”

Daybreak PAC is dedicated to supporting state legislature candidates with a demonstrated commitment to their communities who pledge to reject contributions from corporations, law enforcement, fossil fuel companies, and other special interests.

“Even with a democratic supermajority, Sacramento still isn’t working for everyday people across California,” said Fielder. “The influence of special interests has ballooned out of control, and we need a sea change of truly independent legislators fighting for constituents, not corporations.”
