Something is brewing in Dallas...

I know a boy who grew up in Indianapolis. He came from a two-parent household until his parents no longer held the love for each other that two people think they should. Undeterred, his mother worked to try to mend his sister's and his wounds, to put food on the table and to make sure they were grounded on love, life and cultural awareness over survival.

That boy went on to college, learned to speak Hebrew and transplanted to Dallas to work in science. But something happened and he realized that his passion for people, and causes, and for serving were one that a great salary couldn't replace. For thirteen years, he delved into everything that was about serving - from human rights, addressing economic injustices, to fixing the digital divide in schools, fighting for animal rights and speaking out about police brutality, to advocating for community improvements and entrepreneurship.

That boy's name is Hasani Burton and he's now running for Congress in Dallas' 30th district. Hasani needs our support so he can support the issues that we care about.

I hope you'll join me in getting the word out and getting Hasani in!

    Hello, and thanks for reaching out to us on behalf of Hasani Burton.

    I'm supplying this link to a couple of resources describing what we can do for candidates: https://helpdesk.dailykos.com/kb/information-about-candidates-campa...

    After you read them, you'll have a better idea of the path to take and additional questions you may want to ask of us.

    Good luck!
