YBF POLITICS: Stefanie Brown James On Finding Obama-esque Black Love, Bomb Black Candidates, & Black Respect In Politics

The YBF Podcast

The Collective PAC is everything we need - a candidate incubator and candidate one-stop-support-shop all in one.  When folks say "I don't know any black candidates running for office," they can look no further than The Collective Political Action Committee. Founder Stephanie James Brown chops it up with Natasha about co-founding this necessary org with her husband back in 2016 to put more black candidates in office on all levels who have respect for people's needs. From superstars like Cory Booker, Jamie Harrison, Ayanna Pressley and Cori Bush to newbies you need to know like Dr. Cameron Webb, Lauren Underwood, and Jamaal Bowden - they've got the run down on who's standing for what and how to donate to their campaigns.  The Collective has doubled their fundraising for these black candidates from last election to now - to the tune of over $12M.  So yeah, it's legit. They find amazing candidates who aren't necessarily handpicked by the establishment and give them the spotlight they deserve.  Did you know over 90% of District Attorneys are white men?  Yeah, so if you feel certain laws are anti-black, let's elect DA's and state Supreme Court Justices who can change them (Staci Williams for Supreme Court of Texas, Place 7 is one you should know). You've got less than two days to get your ballots in, so The Collective PAC has the cheat sheet you need.  Plus, Stephanie dishes on how we, too, could meet our future BAE working and doing our civic duty in politics.  Her & Quentin's Obama-esque love story is one for the books!
