What does power mean to you?
"Power means to me when a citizen in this country becomes a catalyst for hope, a manifestation of the soul of democracy but more importantly becomes a force of nature of the POWER OF ONE!"
"What excites me the most about the justice fund, is that it exemplifies the answered prayers of all the community warriors that have fearlessly fought for equality and equity in minority neighborhoods in Montgomery County."
