U.S. House, Texas 21
A progressive activist and a former small business owner with years of experience in the government and nonprofit sectors, Derrick Crowe is dedicated to fighting climate change and protecting our environment. He plans to unseat the worst climate change denier in Congress in Texas’s’ 21st congressional district.
Derrick is a former staffer for senior Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives and has been up-close-and-personal with the legislative process since the beginning of his professional career and he knows what it takes to be an effective legislator and advocate for his congressional district.
As political director for Brave New Foundation, Derrick made sure the American people’s voice was heard on issues related to militarism and the Pentagon budget. He has partnered with Black Lives Matter in the past and continues to work to fight racism.
Derrick believes we need an economy that works for everyone, not just the people at the top. He will fight to stop the assault on communities of color because he knows that structural racism and right-wing scaremongering has corroded the American Dream for too many, for too long. Derrick will fight for a living wage for all, universal health care, and ensuring that our environment stays healthy so that we can keep fighting for equality.
