OFA-NV to Host African Americans for Obama Event, Highlighting President Obama’s Accomplishments for the African American Community


Senator Steven Horsford, Assemblyman Kelvin Atkinson will join local community leaders to discuss the President’s accomplishments


LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – On Friday, August 3, OFA-NV will host an African Americans for Obama event with Assemblyman Kelvin Atkinson, Clark County Commissioner Lawrence Weekly and Las Vegas Councilman Ricki Barlow. Throughout his first term, the President is focused on making sure Nevada’s nearly 300,000 African Americans and all Americans get a fair shot and opportunity to succeed. 

In 2009, the President’s Recovery Act kept 6.2 million Americans out of poverty. And the tax cut legislation he signed into law expanded the Earned Income Tax Credit and Child Tax Credit, assisting over 2 million African American families and almost 5 million African American children. 

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) signed into law by President Obama provides insurance for over 4 million African Americans that were uninsured, including over 35,000 in Nevada. The ACA also expands access to preventative care for 41 million African Americans who suffer disproportionate rates for chronic diseases and eliminates lifetime caps on insurance for 10.4 million African Americans. 

The goal of African-Americans for Obama program is to promote the President’s accomplishments on behalf of the community, to be a resource for African-Americans who want to get involved with the campaign and to increase the number of African-American volunteers working to ensure that the President wins in November. 

WHO:             State Senator Steven Horsford           

                             Assemblyman Kelvin Atkinson 

WHAT:         African Americans for Obama 

WHEN:          Friday, August 3, 2012, 1:00 PM PT
