1035 Signatures to be Delivered to Coalition of African-American Pastors

1035 Concerned Citizens Sign "Coalition of African American Pastors must stop dividing the Black Community" petition
Sept. 5, 2012 - PRLog -- On September 9th, Operation: REBIRTH of Chicago will deliver a petition signed by 1035 people to Pastor Bill Owens, Executive Director of Coalition of African-American Pastors.

The petition was created on the website SignOn.org and states, "Stop the Coalition of African American Pastors (CAAP) from dividing the Black Community and splitting the Black vote. Now is the time for justice and unity."

Instead of uniting the Black Community to fight against Voter ID/Suppression laws, drugs, violent crimes, lack of education, high unemployment and the disproportionate number of Black men in the prison system, the Coalition of African American Pastors (CAAP) is rallying for 100,000 signatures on a petition to stand against President Obama in this election because of his personal views on marriage equality. We must stop allowing our community to be divided over our diversity, and focus on those things that make us the same. Equality has never hurt anyone, it only makes us stronger.

SignOn.org is a new online organizing platform, created by the non-profit organization MoveOn.org Civic Action, that allows individuals and organizations to run their own online campaigns.
