John Fetterman is an advocate for welcoming refugees, immigrants, and DREAMERS. As a long time public servant, and as a husband to an immigrant, he understands the challenges facing refugees and immigrants and is committed to supporting new arrivals in Pennsylvania and the U.S. Fetterman started his career in public service as mayor of Braddock, PA because he recognized the need for strong leadership in his community. For 13 years he worked to build a once-booming steel town back from its collapse. In 2018, Fetterman became lieutenant governor and transformed the position. He fought for causes he believes in, from immigration reform to LGBTQ+ rights. Fetterman has led the fight in Pennsylvania to free the wrongfully convicted and give second chances to deserving longtime inmates. He championed marijuana legalization on a historic tour of all 67 counties and he led the fight to give second chances to non-violent longtime inmates. Throughout his political career, Fetterman has proven time again that he is committed to working towards a brighter future for all Pennsylvanians. He has unwaveringly stood up for what is right, all of his life. If elected to the Senate, he will continue to do so and make the real change that Pennsylvania needs.
