HOUSTON, Texas -- TX-02 Democratic nominee Sima Ladjevardian has been endorsed by ASPIRE PAC, the political action committee of Asian American and Pacific Islander Members of Congress and their supporters.
"As an AAPI woman, I am honored to be endorsed by ASPIRE PAC in this fight for Houston’s health care,” Sima Ladjevardian said. "I am ready to fight to provide the high-quality, affordable health care that our Houston family desperately needs and represent the best of our diverse community.

Sima Ladjevardian (SEE-ma LAHJ-ee-VAR-DEE-un) is a lawyer, a mother of two, a breast cancer survivor, and a political activist who has called Houston home for more than 30 years. After fleeing the political upheaval of the Iranian Revolution, her family immigrated to the United States for their shot at the American Dream. Eventually settling in Houston, Sima has become a local leader in cross-cultural dialogue, bringing Texans of all backgrounds and faiths together for social justice. As an activist, she has worked tirelessly to turn Texas blue and elect candidates up and down the ballot — all while serving senior roles in Beto O’Rourke's senate and presidential campaigns. She has been recognized by the University of Houston for her tireless philanthropic and nonprofit work in the community, and she is fueled by the desire to fight for quality, affordable health care, justice, and unity in the United States Congress.
