Our moment is now.
Watch the video.

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 values — of our 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 health care, and guaranteeing a quality education for every single 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 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.

Get to know Colin.

Jobs

Building an economy for everyone

For too many Texans, good-paying jobs remain too hard to find. We need to raise the minimum wage and invest in technical schools and job training programs while also doing more to support the small businesses that are the driver of our economy.

Healthcare

Ensuring affordable care for all

Colin knows what it’s like to struggle to make ends meet, and that’s why he understands that no family should be forced to choose between paying medical bills and putting food on the table. Colin will work to ensure that every family can afford to see a doctor.

Our Rights

Safeguarding our civil rights and liberties

As a civil rights lawyer, Colin understands the importance of protecting constitutional rights. But today, those rights and liberties are under attack. Every American, no matter their gender, race, ethnicity, or sexual orientation, should have opportunities to work hard and succeed.

The President is sabotaging the American health care system and Congress is doing nothing to stop him. https://t.co/Hrci35fZpN
