#27: Davante D Peters Running For Dallas City Council District 3 "To Fight Poverty, Police Accountability" And MORE!
By Brother Ben X Podcast
Davante Peters is challenging incumbent Casey Thomas in District 3. Peters is running on a platform of reform including: fair chance hiring and ban the box; police accountability, including establishing a new oversight board; expanding opportunities for and creating more affordable housing units; ending the food desert in South Dallas; fighting poverty; taking action on climate change; and eradicating symbols of the Confederacy in the city. “The time for politics as usual in Dallas District 3 are over,” said Peters. “For decades, we have functioned under a system of political accommodation, where Black leadership used political office to align themselves more closely with the White power structure and exploitative capitalist practices. I’m excited to partner with Working Families Party because they fight for working people who are struggle to make ends meet in our current system.” --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/brotherbenx/support
