BOSTON (AP) - U.S. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is planning to join fellow Democrats to tour Massachusetts highlighting challenges facing women and families.

Pelosi will begin the bus tour Monday morning in Lowell with a stop at Middlesex Community College with U.S. Reps. Niki Tsongas and John Tierney, who is facing a tough re-election battle this year.

Pelosi then plans to stop at Roxbury Technology in Boston’s Hyde Park neighborhood shortly after noon where she will be joined by other members of the state’s all-Democratic congressional delegation including Reps. Katherine Clark, Mike Capuano and Joe Kennedy.

Boston Mayor Martin Walsh is also planning to attend the Hyde Park event.

Democrats say they want to bring attention to issues like equal pay for equal work, raising the minimum wage, paid sick leave, and affordable child care.
