We’re running a people-centered campaign — one that goes into every community and talks to every voter, and this weekend was no exception. From rallies to roundtables and everything in between, here’s a look at just some of the events in which Mayor Pete participated.
He kicked off the weekend by meeting with the leaders of several faiths at the Cathedral of Hope in Dallas, where they discussed how religion and community building is central to healing the wounds of racism, homophobia, and discrimination — sometimes from our own government:
Later that evening Mayor Pete helped headline the Dallas County Democratic Party’s Jordan-Johnson Dinner, where an overflowing crowd of fired up Democrats greeted him:
On Saturday morning, Mayor Pete sat with a roundtable of Black and Latinx student leaders along with their faculty mentors at the University of Houston-Downtown. These student leaders, despite their differing backgrounds, have built a community based in solidarity:
And those discussions carried over into the afternoon, where Mayor Pete met with Harrison Guy from Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner’s LGBTQ+ Advisory Board. Introduced by former Mayor Annise Parker, Pete moderated a discussion with faith leaders from Black churches on how how to create a culture of safety for transwomen of color, our shared need for common sense gun safety laws, and how faith has helped ground the Black queer community in Houston:
Afterward, Mayor Pete and Chasten attended a grassroots rally where Pete was spoke about security, immigration, protecting our democracy and the importance of hope:
He was also able to share a special moment with two supporters: a Gold Star Mother and Selena Garcia, a student organizer and proud DACA recipient who shared her story with Mayor Pete at University of Houston-Downtown that afternoon:
On Sunday morning, Pete made a stop in Plains, Georgia where he was humbled to meet with President Carter. He is a true public servant and America is blessed for his continuing leadership:
His final stop for the weekend was North Charleston, South Carolina where Mayor Pete kicked off a grassroots rally where he spoke about the dire need for criminal justice reform:
And those are just some of the highlights from this weekend!
Traveling across the country and speaking with voters from all ages, races, genders, and backgrounds is an important part of this campaign.
As always, thanks for your support,
Pete for America
