Colin Allred represents Texas’s 32nd Congressional District, having defeated eight-term incumbent Pete Sessions. He is the first Democrat to represent the 32nd since the district’s creation. Following a career in the NFL, Allred pursued a law degree at UC Berkeley. Upon graduation, he started his legal career as a Special Assistant in the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Office of General Counsel. At HUD, he worked with then-Secretary Julian Castro to ensure that the most vulnerable Americans can live in dignity. In Texas, he has put his legal skills to work as the Dallas-Fort Worth director of the first-ever state-wide voter protection program during the 2014 gubernatorial election.
Rep. Allred is dedicated to strengthening the US-Israel alliance, and will work in Congress to ensure that Israel maintains a Qualitative Military Edge in the region. Allred firmly believes that both countries should work together to counter the threat Iran poses to Israel and the broader region, and was greatly disappointed by the President’s decision to abandon the JCPOA. He remains dedicated to advocating for a diplomatic approach to ensure that Iran never acquires a nuclear weapon. Congressman Allred also believes that the United States must play a leading role in facilitating and supporting negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians, with the ultimate goal of achieving a two-state solution, and therefore supports continued US aid to the Palestinian Authority.
