Danielle Allen Endorses Maura Healey for Governor Ahead of the Democratic Convention

Allen is an internationally-recognized democracy advocate and previously ran for Governor of Massachusetts

BOSTON – Ahead of the Democratic Convention, former candidate for Governor and Harvard professor Danielle Allen endorsed Maura Healey for Governor of Massachusetts. Allen ran on a platform focused on strengthening democracy, addressing the substance use crisis, and bringing our communities together to tackle challenges from housing to climate to justice reform. She will serve as one of Healey’s nominators at the Convention.

“I’m delighted to endorse Maura Healey — a seasoned leader with an invaluable depth of experience across the board and a track record of commitment to the people of Massachusetts,” said Allen. “With the depth and strength of her criminal justice reform agenda, including her focus on driving progress through leadership appointments, Maura is already leading for change — and with her support for climate justice, overdose prevention sites, and same day voter registration, she will be an effective champion on the biggest issues facing our state. I look forward to nominating her this weekend.”

“Throughout her distinguished career as a leader, scholar, and visionary, Danielle has pushed our country to live up to its highest ideals. She brought that same conviction to this race,” said Healey. “She and I share the belief that our state can thrive only when all of our residents can participate freely in our democracy and live healthy, happy lives. I’m grateful to her for her faith in our campaign and proud to earn her endorsement today.”

Danielle Allen is a seasoned nonprofit leader, democracy advocate, national voice on pandemic response, distinguished author, and mom. Danielle made history as the first Black woman ever to run for statewide office in Massachusetts. Her work to make the world better for young people has taken her from teaching college and leading a $60 million university division to driving change at the helm of a $6 billion foundation, writing for the Washington Post, advocating for cannabis legalization, democracy reform, and civic education, and most recently, to running for governor of Massachusetts. During the height of COVID in 2020, Danielle’s leadership in rallying coalitions and building solutions resulted in the country’s first-ever Roadmap to Pandemic Resilience; her policies were adopted in federal legislation and a Biden executive order. She continues to advocate for democracy reform to create greater voice and access, and drive progress towards healthy communities, a healthy democracy, and a healthy climate for our country and our Commonwealth.
