Massachusetts Nurses Association

"Sarah Hewins is committed to her community, working for many years as both a volunteer and elected town official to better the lives of everyone around her.

She will be a strong voice for the vulnerable on Beacon Hill."

Massachusetts AFL-CIO

"We are proud to support Sarah Hewins for State Representative. She is a proven leader who is not afraid to stand up for what is right. She is exactly the type of voice working people need in the House of Representatives. She understands how important it is to build an economy that works for everyone - not just the wealthy and well connected."

—AFL-CIO President Steve Tolman

Massachusetts Teachers Association

"Sarah Hewins will be a compelling advocate in the Legislature for students and public education. When meeting with educators, Sarah clearly articulated her commitment to our public schools, colleges and universities. We can count on her to be a strong voice for working families and communities across our Commonwealth."

SEIU Local 509

"Right now, more than 1.2 million Massachusetts residents have no access to a secure retirement plan. In fact, the majority of private sector workers have less than $5,000 saved toward retirement—and the numbers get worse each year. That's why we need to elect leaders like Sarah Hewins. As our State Representative, Sarah will fight to pass the Secure Choice Retirement Savings Program, an initiative that will ensure all working families have a safe, easy way to save for our post-work years."
