Thank you SO MUCH for all of you who have already donated to our "People before Politics" campaign. Today is the fundraising deadline for the quarter at midnight, and Jack Jr. and I are busy making last-minute calls to get to our magic number to qualify for the 100k+ grant. And we are SO CLOSE.
Can you chip in $5 right now so I don't need to give my 2 week-old kid an early talk about disappointment? lol
Can we count on your support? Click here to donate: secure.anedot.com/perry-2020/supportjack ...

On June 19th at 8:56AM, I had the honor of becoming a father for the first time. Even though it’s only been a few days of being a father to Jack Jr., this has certainly been life-changing. This little bundle of joy will certainly motivate me to work even harder for our community, friends, loved ones, and our future.
On behalf of Jack Jr., Lindsey, and myself, have a Happy Father's Day! ...

I’ve been at a loss for words this past week. Like many of you I am angry. This is a rational, emotional response to watching a grown Black man cry for his mother while being strangled to death. The Black community has suffered prejudice and injustice again and again, and for that, I understand why people are protesting.
Growing up, I heard the racial slurs thrown at me and have even been told I couldn’t play at a neighborhood park because of the color of my skin.
We are all human and we need to work together to end racism. The only way forward is to educate each other, to shed light on the darkness, because if we don’t, it will consume us. Education and understanding are the key to success. We need civil discourse. We need to respect each other for all of the wonderful things that make us unique.
WE NEED TO LISTEN! We CAN and WILL do better.
Be the change you want to see in the world. I pledge to use my campaign as an opportunity to understand the needs of all residents of the 16th district to make sure that our representatives are standing with all communities. And I pledge to use my platform to speak out against injustice. Who’s with me? ...
