Throughout her career so far, Brandy has demonstrated her commitment to fighting systemic racism in the criminal legal system and dismantling the school to prison pipeline. As a lawyer, she has worked to provide equitable representation to people regardless of their race or background. As a teacher, she has fought to ensure that kids get the support they need. As an advocate on beacon hill, she has successfully lobbied for investments that make our school system more just. As you’ll hear, she has thought deeply about the ways that entrenched racism in our society interacts with policing, housing, environmental justice, and educational and legal outcomes and she has big plans for fighting to reform all of these systems. Something that really comes out in this conversation is how centering people at the margins can be positive sum, and can benefit everyone across society. So please help send Brandy to the State House. The primary is on September first. If you’re voting by mail, turn in your ballot application ASAP. And if you miss the vote-by-mail deadline, you’ll be able to vote early during the week starting August 22nd. Also read this interview on Medium and get involved at www.electbrandy.com/
