It's time for new leadership
North Texas is one of the most dynamic and diverse communities in America. Our region is growing dramatically, with more than one hundred thousand people moving here every year, attracted by opportunity, our spirit, and our way of life.
But with our country and community facing huge challenges, the politicians in Washington have ignored the needs — and the values — of Texas' 32nd District.
For too many, the pathway to opportunity remains closed; college tuition is skyrocketing, good-paying jobs are harder to come by, and our civil liberties are under attack.
We deserve leaders who will take on the fights that matter to us: building an economy that works for everyone, ensuring affordable housing and healthcare, and guaranteeing a quality education for every child.
Colin was born and raised in this District.
He attended Dallas public schools, where his mom was a teacher for part of her 27-year career in public education. He lives by the values that he learned here, those same values that inspired him to work to preserve our most important right as Americans — the right to have your voice heard at the ballot box.
With the help of his family, community, and coaches, Colin was able to attend some of the best schools our country has to offer, pursue his dreams of playing in the NFL, and become a civil rights attorney.
Colin’s story shouldn’t be the exception. If you work hard and play by the rules, every Texan should have the opportunity to achieve their dreams. That’s why Colin is running for Congress.
Our leaders in Washington aren’t tackling the problems facing the people of North Texas. Together, we can change that.
I witnessed Colin’s passion and drive for serving his community first hand while working with him at the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
– Julián Castro, former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development
"There is no question Colin Allred has the deep roots and experience needed to represent North Texas in Congress."
– Ambassador Ron Kirk, former mayor of Dallas
