HeadlineJun 06, 2023

Author, civil rights activist and professor of philosophy Cornel West has announced he’s running for president as a candidate with the People’s Party. In a short video released Monday, West said his campaign will focus on ending poverty, mass incarceration, wars and ecological collapse, while guaranteeing housing, healthcare, education and living wages for all.

Cornel West: “I have decided to run for truth and justice, which takes the form of running for president of the United States as a candidate for the People’s Party. I enter in the quest for truth. I enter in the quest for justice. And the presidency is just one vehicle to pursue that truth and justice, what I’ve been trying to do all of my life.”
