GOP WELCOMES BLACK VOTERS.....NO MORE EXCUSES
DID YOU KNOW IT WAS ACTUALLY THE GOP WHICH FIRST ALLOWED BLACK PEOPLE TO VOTE IN AMERICA & SEEK PUBLIC OFFICE? (HIRAM REVELS - 1800's)

Today, the Republican National Committee is out with a new video highlighting Black Republicans across the country engaging voters in their communities:
After the results of the 2012 presidential election, the RNC recognized that a change in the way it reached out to black voters was in order. We already saw improvements in support from Black voters in the 2014 midterm elections, but the work was far from over.
We are still working every day to build trust through engagement, establish a consciously committed presence in black communities across the country, and train the next generation of leaders through programs like the Republican Leadership Initiative (RLI).
The Republican Party has always stood for self-determination, empowerment, and community-based involvement, values that we know resonate with African Americans.
With this rededication to black voters, the RNC is opening doors and creating opportunity for dialogue where it didn't exist before. At the RNC and Ohio Republican Party Black History Month celebration in Columbus, Ohio earlier this month, Black Republicans from across the state shared with us why the party's message resonates with them.
We are all committed to empowering others to be their best selves. We are all committed to preserving the freedom and liberty we have as Americans.
Together, we are the GOP.
