As a native son of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Gary Chambers Jr. leads, advocates and lives by the motto “Do Good, Seek Justice”, an excerpt from the gospel of Isaiah 1:17 which requires those in position to effect change to work diligently on behalf of the most vulnerable. It is this spirit of service that inspired his decision to run for the U.S. Senate.
Gary Chambers, an entrepreneur and co-founder of the media outlet, The Rouge Collection, is a noteworthy social justice advocate and community organizer who has been featured in outlets such as 225 Magazine (2017 People to Watch edition), Wired Magazine, The New York Times, CNN, Morning Joe, and Roland Martin Unfiltered for his tireless efforts in advancing the most disenfranchised communities across Louisiana. As an advocate, his work has contributed to advancements in the justice system, healthcare access, and to equality in the municipal contracting process for minority owned businesses.
He is seeking office during an unprecedented time in American and Louisianan history that calls for bold new leadership to tackle the issues of the future. His candidacy is a response to thousands in Louisiana and across the country urging him to be a voice for them in the Senate. One that can bring the type of change that reaches working-class people in tangible ways.
Louisiana has been burdened with the type of inequity that can only be resolved through fearless representation on its behalf. Chambers has a courageous vision to bring resources back to the people of Louisiana, and is guided by the belief that we can lead this nation from the bottom of the map.
