We are one of the most illegally surveilled communities… in America. And what we need right now… is to pull all of those people back in. We need to let them know… that someone who looks like you, someone who talks like you… can be elected to a political office. I am a candidate for City Council in the 43rd District in Brooklyn. If you are a DSA member on the fence… not sure if you want to get engaged or not… This is our historic opportunity… to be engaged… to be involved, to make a difference. So, I want you to go out today… and tell people… Reverend El-Yateem knows this neighborhood is not a conservative neighborhood… it’s a progressive neighborhood! And together, we can make a difference. And together, will put people above politics. The most important thing, to help implement change… is that we in the grass roots… develop a structure that allows us to build collective power… and have influence with candidates. We are in a position to actually take back power. We can win this thing. We can win! And you are here today… to ensure that this victory can happen.
