About the event
I am officially kicking off my campaign for US Representative in the 37th Congressional district based in Austin, TX.
Bring your friends and join me at Draught House Pub & Brewery to learn more about my campaign and my plan for building a nation that works for all of us.
Why I am running:
From an early age, I have felt compelled to serve my community. This manifested itself in my involvement in church; in joining and starting clubs in school; in participation in leadership workshops and youth legislatures; and even today in fostering safe spaces for LGBTQ+ rock climbers. My experiences in these various groups have made me a firm believer that if you want to see change in your community, you must step up and make it happen. This is the time for change.
I’m running for Congress to fight for progressive values that support social equity and encourage inclusion. Growing up in Alabama, I didn’t have to travel far to see the effects of income inequality or racial discrimination. I never had to imagine being dismissed for my inclusion in the LGBTQ+ community, I lived it. Today, we continue to see our most vulnerable communities denied equal access, protections, and opportunity in services like housing, medical care, education, and employment. Representation and support from allies are more important today than ever before.
I’m running for Congress because I know representation matters. For too long we have seen the same faces and heard the same voices legislating on our behalf, however, the electorate has continued to become younger, more diverse, and more progressive. Without representation, those without power will continue to have their rights compromised. It is time to give our city a choice in electing someone who will fight to elevate the voices of all our communities.
I’m running for Congress because I know that we cannot move our country forward by leaving others behind. I know we can build a better future by investing in America’s greatest asset, our people. I know meaningful change is closer than we think, and I know we can build a future that works for all of us.
