Did you ever feel that if you were a Congressman, Senator, State Representative or a councilman, you could have done better than many of them out there?

We are the Center for Pluralism, a non-profit, non-partisan organization committed to building a cohesive America, where every American should feel secure about his or her faith, race, ethnicity, culture, sexual orientation, or any other distinction. With that mission, we are dedicating our effort to shaping* the future of America in the religious, political, workplace, and social sphere.
In the political arena, we want to encourage everyone to run for the public office, we will share resources and training center to get organized.
We are sharing this note to encourage everyone to run for public office. Each one of you knows the system, well. Every one of you has a grandchild or an adult son or daughter who can run for the office in a few years.
You must reach out to every American in your constiututency, even if they shut the door on you.
If someone wants to run in 2022, we have to start working now.
All are welcome to join the training, we hope to ready candidates who care for America and American interests first. We will be happy to strip the poisoning* your parents may have injected in you towards fellow Americans from different faiths, nationalities, races, ethnicities and other uniqueness.
We need to reassure each other, that together as Americans, we are committed to safeguarding the American way of life. No American needs to worry about losing his or her way of life. Together as Americans, we uphold, protect, defend, and celebrate the values enshrined in our Constitution, a guarantor of our political and social structures that each one of us wants.
Let me share a few thoughts about my own experience, how you can do it. By the way, the details are in Chapter 17 of the book American Muslim Agenda.
Following the advice to build up from grassroots in chapter 17 of the Book American Muslim Agenda, I chose to live in an all-Black neighborhood in SE DC to build up with the goal of running for DC City Council leading to Mayor. If you think it is difficult, you are wrong, it is very easy to run for public office. Here is the full story on building your place in politics. https://centerforpluralism.com/black-neighborhood-is-my-neighborhood/
It was also published earlier in the Black Newspaper in my neighborhood.
I was seriously debating about running for office. In 2018, I made inquiries and was willing to relocate to Comstock’s constituency in Virginia; then, my Kidneys gave up on me.
This year, I got the app to run for council at large in DC in 2020; I don’t have the energy to run the campaign, so I dropped the idea. Now, I’m going on in-home dialysis that will hopefully give me the strength and time to focus on training future candidates for 2022.
Why did I write this?
It is to encourage my fellow Americans to run for office. Almost everyone I have met is capable of running for office.
The only qualification required is GUTS, do you have it? If you do, it is time to join the course. It is free, but we urge you to donate to our organization to carry on work like this.
We have to shape the future of America that is good for all Americans. No American has to feel insecure about his/her way of life.
