The Lamar Peoples Story

How a moment with President Barack Obama inspired a decade of public service.

[THIS IS SOMETHING I WROTE BASED  ON YOUR STORY I’VE HEARD BEFORE, BUT I’M THINKING A VIDEO WOULD BE MUCH BETTER HERE]

 

Don’t compare Lamar Peoples to  Barack Obama, not quite. Lamar didn’t graduate top of his class from Harvard Law School. But like Booker T. Washington said, “Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome.”

In the moment Lamar Peoples met Barack Obama in 2012, Lamar Peoples describes an internal paradigm shift. He had personally met a Black man who was President of the United States. Anything was possible.

Even if it came with a fight.

With every fiber of his being, Lamar Peoples turned towards a life of politics. He knocked doors. He made phone calls. People called him a “super-volunteer”.

Super-volunteer status or not, the universe didn’t care. Lamar Peoples began experiencing youth homelessness, sleeping on picnic benches near Ohio State, contrasting the different plans life has for peers based on how they’re born, no matter how much they work.

But here’s the thing about Lamar Peoples, he doesn’t give up without a fight. And he always has room to give back.

He would join the local American Red Cross, raising funds and coordinating local volunteer efforts. He gave back to the local youth homeless shelter, StarHouse, by advocating for and winning thousand of dollars in grants.

[INSERT MORE WINS]

Now, after 10 years of fighting for the American Dream, Lamar Peoples is running for State Representative to keep fighting to make the American Dream a reality for everyone.

We need good people in politics. We need people like Lamar Peoples.

Stand with Lamar Peoples for State Representative.

Please share this to fight for the American Dream.
