House Minority Leader Rep. Fentrice Driskell has been named the EMILYs List’s 2023 Gabrielle Giffords Rising Star, a national organization that helps elect pro-choice women.
This is the award’s tenth year. It recognizes extraordinary women in local or state office and honors commitment to community, dedication to women and families and determination and civility shown by the award’s namesake, former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.
“From fighting for commonsense gun reform to addressing climate change and working to increase access to affordable housing, Leader Driskell has been on the forefront of the battle for meaningful change,” said CEO Laphonza Butler.
