WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, The Collective PAC, the nation’s largest political action committee dedicated to increasing Black political engagement, representation and power across all levels of government, congratulated Louisiana State Senator Troy Carter on his victory in the special election for Louisiana’s 2nd Congressional District. The Collective PAC was proud to have contributed $10,000 to Carter’s campaign in this critical race. Co-founders of The Collective PAC, Quentin James and Stefanie Brown James, released the following statement:
“Congratulations to Troy Carter on winning the special election to represent Louisiana’s 2nd Congressional District. We founded The Collective PAC to help close the representation gap in Black elected leadership at all levels and build an equitable government that truly reflects our society. As we push to expand racial justice and equity across the country, this work has never been more important and we’re excited to see leaders like Troy get to work in Washington. His leadership in the House of Representatives will be critical in holding Republicans accountable and advancing an agenda that gives voice to the systemic inequalities that continue to hold back our most vulnerable communities.”
