I Am A Community Organizer (300x243)

    Newer Older

    "The AfroSpear and afrosphere have heeded the call for community organizing within the Black community, both online and in our day jobs, as teachers, church deacons, and in other community building efforts. We condemn statements that criticize community organizing - statements that challenge the value of the "one thousand points of light" volunteerism, non-profit and charitable work that George H. W. Bush made a centerpiece of his social programs.

    Rather than attempt to score political points by attacking charitable and non-profit sector efforts, those who seek to lead America should join those community organizers in churches, schools, PTA's, Girls and Boys Clubs, and all those who work tirelessly to make America a better place, every day of the week.

    We in the AfroSpear and afrosphere therefore dedicate this Monday, September 8, 2008 to highlighting the crucial community-organizing efforts online and in our own communities. Even a church choir is a community organization and no one should belittle such efforts simply to score political points."

      Thank you for THIS FOCUS!!! :>) :>)

      Guess I've been a "community organizer" as a career! As a teacher, I have been able to influence the minds of students, not only to learn the subject matter, but to learn that LEARNING empowers them to be able to make a "MEANINGFUL" contribution to society!!! :>) :>)

      Now where's my "CHOIR ROBE"!??? I've been singing in a church choir since I was 5 [+60] = WELLLL, U do the math!! :>) :>)

      MAJOR PROPS!! :>) :>)
