Adia Winfrey receives endorsement from The Collective PAC

Congressional candidate Adia Winfrey’s campaign announced that Winfrey has been endorsed by The Collective PAC.

The campaign said in a statement, “We are so excited to announce that Dr. Adia Winfrey has received the endorsement of The Collective PAC! Dr. Winfrey joins an outstanding group of candidates receiving the endorsement including Democratic Vice-Presidential Nominee Kamala Harris and Nikema Williams who is replacing the late Congressman John Lewis on the ballot this fall.”

The stated goal of the Collective PAC is increasing the numbers of African Americans in elected office at all levels of government in order to help achieve our nation’s promise of truly representative democracy.

Since its launch in 2016, The Collective PAC has helped 55 candidates win general elections.

“For 7 generations my family has called Talladega, Alabama home,” Winfrey said. “I am the mother of four amazing children, a Doctor of Psychology, author, founder of the H.Y.P.E. (Healing Young People thru Empowerment) Movement, and…I am running for Congress in Alabama’s 3rd Congressional District! I believe in the future of our beautiful state and nation. It is time for leadership with a new vision which is #FocusedOnAlabama.”

Winfrey has a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Wilberforce University and a doctorate of clinical psychology degree from the Wright State University School of Professional Psychology. She is the founder of the H.Y.P.E. — or Healing Young People thru Empowerment — movement.

Winfrey is the Democratic nominee for Congress in the 3rd Congressional District. She is challenging nine-term incumbent Republican Congressman Mike Rogers in the Nov. 3 general election.
