Jack’d Just Endorsed DeRay McKesson For Mayor Of Baltimore

Out Black Lives Matter activist DeRay McKesson is running for Mayor of Baltimore, and he just got a major endorsement – and a large check – from social networking app Jack’d.

Our friends over at The G-List Society got all the info on the big announcement that brings together two seemingly unlikely allies.

Jack’d is owned by parent company Online Buddies, and their CEO Hector Camacho promised organizing support via Jack’d in addition to their $6,000 donation to the campaign:

“DeRay McKesson is a voice for this generation. His passion, activism and relentless commitment for justice have forced the nation to reflect and respond. We applaud DeRay’s courage and dedication in the demand for equal rights, not only in Baltimore, but throughout the nation.”

And if you think DeRay is feeling anything but honored by the contribution and the support, well take it from the man himself:

“The fight for justice is long. It is a fight to ensure equity within systems and structures that affect so many of us from communities that have traditionally been marginalized because of race and/or identity.

As a proud Black gay man, I’m honored by the support of Jack’d to help mobilize the young, LGBTQ voters of Baltimore. Let’s use our platforms to continue to build community and honor the complexity of our identities.”

Baltimore’s Democratic mayoral primary election is on April 26th. For more on DeRay’s bid, check out his website. We wish him the best of luck!
