CHICAGO – As the Chicago mayoral election enters the final four weeks, Amara Enyia’s campaign released their first digital and televised ad, titled “All of Us”. Featuring a diverse group of faces, Amara introduces herself as an agent of change and encourages people to look beyond candidates who’ve been part of the political establishment for decades.
Amara starts the ad by speaking directly to people who feel disillusioned with politics, “I know it’s hard to believe that it can be different, that your vote even matters, when other candidates are part of the corruption and system that got us here in the first place.”
As Chicago’s political culture of corruption, dishonesty, and phoniness have been on full display during this election, Amara Enyia’s ad cuts through the noise to offer voters a fundamentally different choice.
“I’m not here because I’ve spent years chasing power in an unjust system. I’m here doing what I’ve been doing all of my life: challenging those in power; fighting to build systems that are equitable, just and put people first.”
Cut into both 60- and 30-seconds spots, the ad will air on cable, broadcast and radio, while also being pushed digitally and on social media. Its message represents the campaign’s focus on millennials, generation-z, people of color and other marginalized communities that have catapulted insurgent candidates into electoral upsets across the country. Amara Enyia is tapping into that same energy in Chicago, with a grassroots operation to mobilize voters who want a new set of ideas and leadership.
The ad was released digitally Monday morning and will start airing on television Tuesday.
