Peace Action Endorses Qasim Rashid for Congress in Illinois’ 11th District

NAPERVILLE, IL – Qasim Rashid, human rights lawyer and Democratic candidate for United States Congress in Illinois’ 11th District, proudly announces the endorsement of his campaign by Peace Action, the largest peace and disarmament organization in the United States.

“Peace Action proudly endorses Qasim Rashid for Congress,” said Lilly Dragnev, Campaigns Director at Peace Action. “At a time when countless members of Congress idly and silently stand by as Palestinians are being slaughtered, we need voices for an immediate and permanent ceasefire more than ever. Qasim knows that a ceasefire is not only popular with the majority of Americans, but also the best way to save lives, get the hostages home, and end this brutal war. We need Qasim in Congress to advocate for peace and justice on Capitol Hill when many others won’t.”

Founded in 1957, Peace Action (formerly SANE/Freeze) is dedicated to abolishing nuclear weapons, promoting government spending priorities that support human needs, encouraging real security through international cooperation and human rights, and supporting nonmilitary solutions to international conflicts. With over 100,000 paid members and nearly 100 chapters in 36 states, Peace Action is a leading voice for peace and disarmament in the United States.

Qasim Rashid, a prominent human rights lawyer and advocate, has dedicated his career to championing economic, social, and climate justice for all. His campaign for Congress focuses on fighting for working people, advocating for policies that prioritize justice, equity, and opportunity for all Americans.

“I am deeply honored to receive the endorsement of Peace Action,” said Rashid. “Their commitment to promoting peace, justice, and disarmament aligns closely with my own values and the vision I have for our country. I look forward to working together to build a more peaceful and just world for future generations.”
