The brothers of Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity and Omega Psi Phi fraternity are coming together to form a Super PAC, or Political Action Committee to help re-elect President Barack H. Obama during the 2012 campaign as reported by NewsOne.
Super PACs were established in 2010. They give independent committees permission to raise and spend unlimited amouts of funds to either promote for or against a political candidate. Rightfully named “1911 United” (both fraternities were founded in 1911 for those that aren’t aware), the organization “aims to raise $1.5 million toward training and organizing African-American voters in key battleground states to re-elect President Obama.” according to Sinclair Skinner, treasurer of the committee.
Though 1911 United is focusing on “racially diverse swing states,” the group intends to go anywhere needed. According to the Root, a delegation team will be sent to New Hampshire next week during primaries to help campaign for Obama.
