Onemn.org Vision

 

Greetings! A group of us have been meeting over the months after the Minority Political Summit to create a multiethnic collaborative for the collective voice of ALANA (African, Latino, Asian, Native American) communities. Please see the vision statement below and also in the attached document if this email does not come through well.

 

We invite you to sign on as a member. The link below will take you to the application form which allows you to join the organization at whatever level you are comfortable with. The key is to have a large collective voice so that we can be heard. In the future we also envision us hosting candidate forums and other such events. Please forward to your networks.

 

To date 25 people have signed on…
