A Message from Danielle
During my 15 months on the campaign trail, every single day brought me joy, hope, and a deep sense of optimism about our Commonwealth’s future. People in every corner of Massachusetts are showing up for our communities, and tackling our toughest problems with dedication and ingenuity. Thank you to everyone who shared your dreams for our future and insights about how we can get there — and to members of Team Allen across our Commonwealth, your support has meant so much over this journey. Thank you for your hard work, heart, and partnership.
I ran for governor to advance the cause of a healthy democracy responsive to urgently-felt pain points in people’s lives — whether in housing, transportation, schools, good jobs, justice, climate, health, or the economy. That commitment hasn’t changed, and I know it’s one that so many of us share. I’ll continue that work for a stronger democracy in both my work as a teacher and scholar and in my next phase of political advocacy. Click here to join our mailing list to get updates on what those next steps are, and how you can help. And one immediate way you can take action: please consider supporting Tanisha Sullivan in her run for Secretary of State. I am so proud to have endorsed Tanisha — a seasoned civil rights attorney, Boston NAACP president, and a voice for real reform to make our democracy stronger and more inclusive. Find out more about Tanisha’s candidacy here.
Finally, I’m a big believer that you can always get a whole lot done if you’re not worried about who gets credit. Our campaign put heart and soul into crafting great policy proposals to tackle the challenges Massachusetts is facing, and we’d be so delighted to see any candidate or community adopt these and build off of them.
