Congressional Candidate Alexandra Hunt
Congressional candidate Alexandra Hunt talks with Old Pro News writer and host, Lakeesha Harris, about her campaign and aspirations to be the next Congresswoman from Pennsylvania. Alexandra Hunt is a Congressional candidate for Pennsylvania’s 3rd district, running on a progressive platform that includes advocating for criminal justice reform, Medicare for all, LGBTQIA+ rights, disability rights, and more. Alexandra Hunt is out about her background working as a stripper, among the many other jobs she has held, a fact that the media has sensationalized.
“At the end of the day, we need to decriminalize and destigmatize sex work. Decriminalization will basically mean that the police and our legal system can’t pick people off the streets while they’re trying to make a living and survive in today’s harsh climate.” – Congressional candidate Alexandra Hunt
Her website states that:

She is a daughter of two teachers and a sister to a twin brother. Alexandra’s twin brother grew up with a learning disability. Seeing the systemic obstacles her brother faced inspired Alexandra to become an advocate and challenge barriers on the basis of race, gender, class, and ability.
