It is an exciting time for African Americans, who will play a pivotal role in this election. We want to ensure that you have what you need to share your ideas and turn your enthusiasm for Barack into action that can help lift up your families and communities.

There is no better advocate for African Americans than Barack Obama. Barack knows your story, because it is his story. The causes that you hold dear have been the causes of his life. Barack has spent his entire career fighting for justice — as a community organizer in the streets of the South Side of Chicago, as a civil rights attorney, a constitutional law professor, an Illinois state Senator and a U.S. Senator.

As President, you can trust that he will hear your voice, understand your concerns, and act on
your priorities.

Barack believes that if we can put an end to partisan politics, bring people together, and recognize that what unites us is greater than what divides us – then we can make fundamental change possible in this country. Whether it is ending the Iraq war, providing universal health care, making college tuition more affordable, placing a quality teacher in every classroom, or expanding economic opportunity in urban areas and making “equal justice under the law” a reality for every citizen, you can have confidence in the courage, sound judgment, and leadership of Barack Obama.

Barack is ready to lead as President. But, he needs your help. True to the spirit of the Civil Rights Movement, Barack’s candidacy is driven from the bottom up, by everyday people resolved to come together and demand better of their government

Join us in making America what we dream it can be.
