Colin Allred

US House Texas — 32nd District Democrat
Colin Allred was born and raised in North Dallas, playing five seasons as a linebacker in the NFL before going to law school and becoming a civil rights attorney. After gaining federal experience in the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, he came home to North Texas to continue his public service by representing the 32nd District in Congress.

Rep. Allred was endorsed by Giffords PAC in 2018 because he was not afraid to run on a strong gun safety platform that called for universal background checks and closing the boyfriend loophole. His victory unseated a long-serving NRA ally, a signal of the shifting attitude toward gun safety among voters, not just in the suburbs of Dallas, but state- and nationwide. Rep. Allred grew up around guns, learning how to safely shoot a gun at summer camp, yet also losing childhood friends to gun violence. He recognizes the importance of responsible gun ownership, and has demonstrated his commitment to gun safety with his votes to help pass meaningful legislation such as the Bipartisan Background Checks Act. He will continue to add to his gun safety record when he is elected for a second term this fall.

We are proud to endorse Colin Allred for the US House of Representatives in 2020.
