Local attorney, small business owner, Notre Dame adjunct law professor and Democratic candidate for Congress Pat Hackett announced she has received the endorsement of the influential national political organization LPAC. LPAC is a prominent organization dedicated to building the political voice of LGBTQ women and supporting candidates who display a commitment to women’s equality, LGBTQ rights, and social justice.

“As the only organization dedicated to building the political voice of LGBTQ women, LPAC is proud to endorse Pat Hackett in her run to bring Indiana’s 2nd Congressional District the representation it deserves,” said LPAC Executive Director Stephanie Sandberg.

“I proudly accept the endorsement of LPAC. I am running for Congress because I believe in dignity and justice for all people,” Hackett said. “Jackie Walorski has spent her career representing outside corporate special interests and voting against equal rights for all Americans. LPAC has demonstrated its commitment to our shared values of equality and social justice for ALL Americans. I look forward to working to restore real representation to the people of Indiana’s 2nd Congressional District.”

Pat Hackett graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a B.A. in Government and Theology, an M.A. in Theology and a J.D. from the law school where she now serves as an adjunct professor.
