IVYPAC™ Endorses Candidate Lauren Underwood (IL-14)
This is the second endorsement since the April 2018 formation of the political action committee and the first of a non-incumbent.
New York, NY, September 5, 2018 - IVYPAC, a political action committee (PAC) formed to support the sorority sisters of the PAC’s founders, announced its endorsement of the campaign of Lauren Underwood in Illinois’ 14th Congressional District.
“A registered nurse, Lauren Underwood raised her hand to run for Congress when her congressional representative voted for the American Health Care Act that made it cost prohibitive for people with pre-existing conditions to get health coverage,” said Ramona Prioleau, Chair and Co-Founder of IVYPAC.
Ms. Underwood was also appointed by President Barack Obama to serve as a Senior Advisor at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. During her time in the administration, Lauren helped communities across the country prevent, prepare for, and respond to disasters, bioterror threats and public health emergencies.
“IVYPAC looks forward to supporting Ms. Underwood as she strives to become the first woman, first person of color, and first young adult elected to Congress from the Illinois’ 14th Congressional District,” added Prioleau.
In April 2018, a group of politically-savvy sorority sisters from New York, New Jersey, Ohio, California, Florida and Illinois banded together to form IVYPAC to help elect their sorority sisters to public office. The IVYPAC founders are all members of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.
Paid for by IVYPAC, ivypac.org, and not authorized by any candidate or candidate’s committee.
IVYPAC is not affiliated with Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.

IVYPAC is a nonpartisan grassroots political action committee formed to capitalize and publicize their sorority sisters who are running for federal office; prepare women to run for office and mobilize voters to support the candidates endorsed by IVYPAC.
