    #SC4SB: Let's get the homie elected

    This is the last year of my 20s and I happen to be entering it while running a citywide campaign for school board. 2014 has already been filled with successes and momentum to reach our goal this November. Each opportunity has strengthened my resolve to work at the policy level to improve outcomes for our students and families district-wide. Being that I am graduate of this school district with close family members currently attending our schools, I bring a unique perspective and unwavering sense of responsibility as I seek a position as a Commissioner on the San Francisco Board of Education. 

    I have been touched by all of your ongoing support and commitment to our vision. We have an incredible network of friends, family, and colleagues that have been willing to pitch in and grow our base to help me win this election. 

    Let's come together to celebrate, dance, and build community. Join me in advancing my cause by supporting my vision for the future of public schools in San Francisco.

    This will be the BIGGEST party of my life and we're pulling out all the stops. In honor of turning 29, we're offering the following contribution amounts and packages.

    ENTERTAINMENT:
    Live music by Makra - Latin/Soul/Cumbia - makrumusic.com

    #SC4SB: Let's get the homie elected: Cambridge Edition

    Why are you having a fundraiser for a SF election in Cambridge?

    The immediate impact of a Board of Education Commissioner’s decisions are local, but the work we do as policy makers and what my candidacy represents within the context of local politics has national implications. As a young African American man born without financial and political connections, I have had to work with limited resources and against outdated thinking to become a contender for public office in a city like San Francisco. This campaign is also about breaking these barriers and giving people insight into what meritocratic leadership will look in the 21st century. 

    I've been fortunate to build a network of thriving, socially minded professionals that stretches across the country. Throughout the years we've been able to share in each other’s accomplishments, setbacks, and ambitions. By bringing my campaign to Cambridge, I hope to continue to build on this foundation by fostering new relationships, sharing exciting ideas, and supporting leaders dedicated to improving such a dynamic and precious institution as our nation’s public schools. 

    This event shows that we believe in improving communities wherever there is a need. In addition, it gives us an opportunity to make new connections to further the work we seek to do in our professions. 

    I encourage you the join the homie from San Francisco. Support this work and let's redefine what's possible in local politics.
