Barbara L’Italien’s path continues to lead her back to the State House. Barbara served as the State Representative for the 18th Essex District for 8 years. During her tenure in that office, she advocated strongly for the LGBTQ community by protecting marriage equality and co-sponsoring anti-bullying legislation as well as the first trans equal access bill. As a State Senator, she is ready to push for LGBTQ social justice as a champion. Her past record as a State Representative and her training as a social worker puts Barbara uniquely in tune with the LGBTQ community. MassEquality PAC is happy and excited to endorse Barbara L’Italien in her campaign for re-election to the 2nd Essex & Middlesex district Senate seat.
