Ep. #58 - Marcel Dixon joins us to share why he's challenging James Clyburn for his seat in South Carolina in the 6th district. He's running on a reparations platform, and wants protected status for Black Americans, land allotments etc. Mr. Clyburn’s term ends on Jan. 3, 2023, however he is running for re-election.
Marcel has always been known for being bold when it comes to speaking against structural injustices and impatient when it comes to implementing solutions to solve problems that persisted for too long. He believes we deserve better, and you deserve to have someone you know will truly fight and speak up for you. He promises, if we help send him to DC, he’ll do just that.
