Audri Declares Her Intention to Run for Congress!

Audri Scott Williams, Global Trustee for the United Religions Initiative, Author, World Peace Walker, and Activist has declared her intention to be a Democratic candidate for the 2018 elections for Congress in the state of Alabama. She has been a servant of the people at a grassroots level – locally, nationally, and internationally - for over three decades, having earned the title of World Peace Walker.

Audri Scott Williams says, she is committed to making a difference in Alabama and the Nation at this critical time in the history of our country. 

Mrs. Amelia Platts Boynton Robinson, Matriarch of the Voting Rights Movement, said in her Forward to my book, Awakening the Heart of the Beloved Community, ‘… some people talk about love and peace, but never take any meaningful actions to bring it about, … you possess the right stuff … making it pleasing and proper for me - as your senior - to "pass my freedom, peace and justice torch" to you.’

It is this charge, that now has me walking the path of political leadership, as I state my intention to run for the 2018 race for the U.S. House of Representatives, District 2, in the state of Alabama! I stand among the people who recognize diversity (among all of humanity and in nature) as the greatest gift to the state of Alabama, and to our Nation. I stand among the people who will stand up for a sustainable future for generations to come – for our children and their children’s children! I stand with ordinary people who are willing to do the extraordinary work necessary to end systemic racism, gender bias, classism, xenophobia, homophobia, ageism, religious persecution and who are willing to pursue and protect the best of who we are as a State and as a Nation... to create A NEW ALABAMA, A NEW NATION, WHERE EVERYONE MATTERS!

When asked: What are some of the issues that are important to you? She responded,

Planned Parenthood; Equal Rights; Restorative Justice; Meals on Wheels; the Affordable Care Act; Ending Mass Incarceration; Quality Education for All; Raising Minimum Wage through Sustainable Economic Growth; Protection of Local Industry with incentives for Small Business Development; Tax Reforms, the Right to Vote for All (including  Formerly Incarcerated Men and Women); Environmental Protections, Religious Freedom and Ending Religiously Motivated Violence ;and Social Programs that Protect those Most Vulnerable … (though not  exclusively) represent issues that are important to me..

We are excited to share the news of Ms. Williams’ intention to run for Congress representing District 2 in the state of Alabama. We are seeking introductions to key people in District 2 and throughout the state of Alabama, as well as nationally, who may be helpful in providing advice regarding the upcoming political race. We are also seeking opportunities for Ms. Williams, to speak to groups to share her amazing life story. And, we are asking you to spread the word among your friends, family and constituents. Spread the word – Audri Scott Williams has stated her intention to be a Democratic candidate in 2018 for the U.S. House of Representatives – District 2, in the state of Alabama!

We are not soliciting, nor can we accept, campaign contributions until June 5, 2017, due to rules and regulation regarding Alabama state political campaigns.
