People of Color in the Political Process

Last December about 70 people attended a "Hudson Valley for Obama" event, but not a single minority person showed up. For an event organized by Hudson Valley for Obama that was quite surprising. That led to questions like
Do minorities feel uncomfortable with the general progressive community in this area?
Is there a big disconnect between the issues of interest to each group?
Rev. Modele Clarke, Pastor of New Progressive Baptist Church, and Maude Bruce, President of Ellenville NAACP, will lead a panel discussion on "People of Color in the Political Process" at the Unitarian Fellowship in Kingston at 7:30 on Tuedsay Feb. 24.

These questions and others will be addressed at the event.

Join us for an interesting and important event for all who want to continue the great work that got Obama elected.

Tuesday, February 24th
