“The candidacy of Jamarhl Crawford for Boston City Council represents a grassroots political movement to bring power to the people. While he is a young man, the brother is not a “Johnny Come lately.”  He has been an advocate for social and economic justice and human rights for decades.  He is an example to the younger generation through his journalism, music, and entrepreneurialism.  We believe its time to bring independent leaders like Jamarhl Crawford, who have a track record of service and leadership, in office to bring about the change and government we need.”
