Colin Allred

Re-elect Colin in 2020

Inspired by the many grassroots voices that stepped forward to defend our common values after the 2016 election, Colin ran for Congress because he believed that we need leaders who will stand up for everyone in our community — instead of catering to the special interests that rigged the system against ordinary people in the first place.

At a time when the nation has never been more divided — and economic opportunity is increasingly out of reach for Texas families — Colin is fighting to empower the communities he grew up in by improving public education, encouraging economic growth, ensuring access to quality health care for all, and protecting our civil rights and liberties.

Colin has lived and fought for the American Dream

Born and raised in North Dallas by a single mom who taught in Texas public schools for nearly 30 years, Colin was an All-Star athlete at Hillcrest High School before earning a full-ride football scholarship to Baylor University. Diploma in hand and prepared to attend law school after college, he deferred his acceptance to the University of California Berkeley School of Law when he signed with the Tennessee Titans as an undrafted free agent. Colin played the better part of five seasons in the NFL before sustaining a career-ending neck injury that opened the door for him to fulfill his dream of studying law and applying his legal training to help others.
