Thursday, October 7th, 2021

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 — endorsed Dr. Danielle Allen for Governor of Massachusetts. 

Dr. Danielle Allen is the proud daughter of a librarian and professor who taught her to believe in her own voice and to be ready and willing to lift up the voices of others. That life lesson is one that Dr. Allen took to heart, and has spent her career working tirelessly through her writing, policy work and political advocacy to advance the causes of freedom and equality. Dr. Allen has started and led a range of organizations and is a source of innovative ideas to tackle big problems and put ideas into action.  

Founders of The Collective PAC, Quentin James and Stefanie Brown James, released the following statement: 

The Collective PAC is proud to endorse Dr. Danielle Allen as she seeks to become the first Black woman Governor of Massachusetts. Dr. Allen serves as a James Bryan Conant University Professor, Harvard University’s highest faculty honor. Last year, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Allen assembled a rapid response network of 40 researchers and eight institutions to lay out a policy roadmap and led the development of influential data metrics and tools to help combat the epidemic. Many of the proposals that were detailed in the report and in related work have been incorporated in the Biden-Harris Administration. Dr. Allen has worked for decades in policy domains of justice, health, education, political economy and democracy, and it’s why The Collective PAC is proud to endorse Dr. Danielle Allen for Governor of Massachusetts.”



The Collective PAC is working to create an America where Black people are equally represented at every level of government. The Collective PAC is strategically focused on creating a truly equitable democracy where our nation’s local, state and federal governments have diverse and talented elected leadership and Black people are fully represented in positions of power to create the policies necessary to progress our communities forward.
