African American Community Unites Around Scott McAdamsConcerned about major issues surrounding this year's election, the African American community in Anchorage is mobilizing and plans to host a "Fun Fundraiser" for Scott McAdams at the Prince Hall Grand Lodge, 1200 E. 9th Avenue on Thursday, September 30, 5:30 PM to encourage people of all races to participate in the political process.
"We can no longer afford to wait to organize - the time for action is now" said Senator Bettye Davis who is one of the organizers of the effort. Davis said, "We must come together if we want to continue moving Alaska forward. We simply can't afford to sit idly by and watch the parade of the election unfold from the comforts of our homes. We must get involved - there are too many issues at stake."
McAdams asked for a meeting with members of the African American community last week and at that meeting shared his visions to move all of Alaska forward, including the African American community.
In addition to meeting candidates, addressing key issues within our community, registering people to vote, and hearing more from U.S. Senate candidate, Scott McAdams and others, there will be music, barbecue, presentations and live entertainment.
Hugh Brown III, a MoveOn.org member says, "This election is critical to the future of not only African Americans in Alaska, but to all people across the nation. We have to address the extreme views being promoted by candidates running for office."
This is a public event and anyone interested and concerned about the tone of the election is encouraged to attend. For questions, please call Hugh Brown III at 884-9968 or Cal Williams at 276-8698.
Paid for by Scott McAdams for U.S. Senate, P.O. Box 200569, Anchorage, AK 99520
