Congressman Danny K. Davis remarks regarding the endorsement of Reverend John Harrell, Founder and President of Black Men United
I stand before you today with a deep sense of gratitude as I accept the endorsement of Reverend John Harrell, Founder and President of Black Men United, and a respected Pastor at both New Hope Baptist Church and Proviso Missionary Baptist Church.
Reverend Harrell, thank you for your trust and support. Your endorsement is not just a personal honor but a testament to the unity and shared commitment we have towards the betterment of our community.
Black Men United, under the guidance of Reverend Harrell, has been a beacon of hope and a driving force for positive change. Reverend Harrell's leadership, both in the spiritual realm and as a community organizer, has been instrumental in fostering empowerment, advocacy, and unity among our people. His dedication to uplifting the voices of the marginalized and addressing the pressing issues that affect our community daily is commendable and aligns seamlessly with the values I hold dear.
As we join hands in this endorsement, we recognize the pressing challenges that our community faces. Issues such as economic inequality, healthcare disparities, and systemic injustice demand our collective attention and action. Reverend Harrell and I share a vision of a community where every individual has the opportunity to thrive, regardless of their background or circumstances.
I am committed to working tirelessly alongside Reverend Harrell and Black Men United to address these challenges head-on. By fostering collaboration, encouraging open dialogue, and implementing policies that uplift the most vulnerable among us, we can create a community that truly reflects the values of justice, equality, and opportunity for all.
Reverend Harrell, your endorsement is not just a symbol of support but a call to action. Together, let us embark on a journey to build a future that honors our shared values and empowers every member of our community. I am grateful for your trust and look forward to the work we will accomplish together.
Thank you all for being here today, and let us move forward united in our commitment to a better tomorrow.
