Community Leader Endorsements
As a young person having grown up in the District, it’s more important to me to have endorsements of the pillars of the community who have come before me and paved the way.
We stand on the shoulders of giants who have been doing this work for generations to improve our neighborhoods, and I’m honored to have their respect and support.
