Calling All Black Women for Obama!

BWFO in South CarolinaLadies! We have been called upon to undertake an historic task!

In this election year, more than any other, the voices of black women all over the nation are being heard, and nowhere more so than in South Carolina.

The South Carolina Obama for America Team has asked the women of Black Women for Obama around the nation to assist in spreading the word about Senator Obama in South Carolina, one of the key first primary states, and one inwhich over 50% of registered Democrats are African American. More important still, over 50% of registered black voters are women.

Unless you’ve been living under a political rock, you know that this election is historic in that it pits a woman against the first viable African American candidate ever. The media would have us believe that the black female vote has all but gone to Billary, but the women of BWFO have known all along that this simply isn’t true. We also know that all we must do is reach out to those undecided, or apathetic voters and tell them from our hearts and in our own words why we know beyond a shadow of a doubt that Senator Barack Obama is this nation’s best hope for a brighter future to turn undecided voters into Obama supporters!

Black Women of America, we need you. If you are interested in assisting the National Obama for America campaign with the important task of reaching out to the voters in South Carolina who need to hear from us, please let us know by joining BWFO, or giving us your information so that we can contact you about how you can play a part in getting Senator Obama into the White House.

A word about South Carolina: while all of the early primary states are important, winning South Carolina for Senator Obama will ensure that we gain precious momentum going into Super Tuesday on February 5th. That’s the day that an additional 18 states hold caucuses and primaries to select their choice for the Democratic nominee. The campaign has asked us to help them win South Carolina, so we have pledged as an organization to make this our singular focus.

If you are not currently a member of Black Women for Obama and want to help, please submit your information by clicking here, or call us at 678-768-8527 for more information. You can also email us at info@blackwomenforobama.org. We need as many volunteers as we can get, and we need them immediately!

This is it, ladies – this is why we formed Black Women for Obama. I’m counting on each and every black woman out there who knows this country needs a change, who knows that our schools are sub-standard compared to the rest of the industrialized world, who knows our healthcare system is broken, and who wants to ensure that we are never again tricked into a senseless war, to join forces with us and help us blanket South Carolina with the good news of Senator Obama’s vision for our country!

    We are planning to go to South Carolina too! maybe we can meet when we are there. We aren’t going to ask people to vote for anybody, but to publicly shame the candidates for failing to address issues of particular concern to Black women such as Dunbar Village and Black on Black crime.

    I’m hopeful that sisters in South Carolina will have a chance to reconsider their current support for Hillary once they see Barack handle himself in the upcoming televised debates this month … and if he can pull off an upset victory in Iowa.

    Good luck on your efforts!

    peace, Villager
