Dallas S. Jones traveled to London, England to address the British Parliament about the success of the 2018 judicial midterm campaign, ’Harris Black Girl Magic’ and what it tells us about the future of our Democratic Party.
Jones, President and CEO of ELITE Change Inc. and longtime Democratic political analyst, addressed members of the House of Commons and the House of Lords about the US midterm elections, mobilizing ethnic communities, and the historical success of ‘Harris Black Girl Magic’— a judicial campaign Jones created to bring awareness to a record number of African American women running for judge in Harris County. The campaign successfully seated all 19 women and received heavy national and international news coverage, including CNN, The New York Times, Cosmopolitan, CBS National News, BBC News and Independent UK, amongst others.
In addition to addressing Parliament, Jones was featured as the keynote speaker at an event hosted by Friends of Labor USA, Deputy Leader of Lambeth Council Jennifer Brathwaite, and Councilor Sonia Winifred at the Black Cultural Archives, which is the only national heritage centre dedicated to the histories of African and Caribbean people in Britain. Jones also had the opportunity to address the Democrats Abroad UK (DAUK), at an event hosted by Adrienne Johnson of the DAUK Black Caucus, and share his experience during the ‘Harris Black Girl Magic' campaign and the future of the Democratic Party and our nation.
