Concerned Communities for America

DaQuawn Bruce

Executive Director

DaQuawn Bruce is a campaign professional with a passion for community-focused efforts that empower individuals to have the dignity of life and work as responsible, self-sufficient citizens who strengthen their society and the nation. His early experience in the 2012 Obama campaign convinced him that a heavy-handed government deprived communities of autonomy and self-determination, weakening them from within.

Embracing the free thought and enterprise embodied in the conservative movement, DaQuawn went on to lead grassroots efforts mobilizing youth for Congressional races throughout the country and to work with Senator Tim Scott (R) and the House Select Committee on the Modernization of Congress. He is the Co-founder of Project 26 United, a nonprofit that seeks to curb gun violence through entrepreneurship in his hometown of Chicago. DaQuawn is frequently featured in national media including FOX News, NewsNation, Newsweek and USA Today.
