Over 100 Influential Black Organizations Join Forces for Voter Empowerment Campaign

Results of Issues Poll Released During Launch of Unity 04

WASHINGTON, DC – Jan 14, 2004 /Send2Press Newswire/ — A coalition of political, business,
and civic organizations launched the Unity 04 Civic Engagement and Voter Empowerment
Campaign (Unity 04), during a press conference at the National Press Club in Washington,
DC last week. The coalition also released the results of an issues poll measuring opinions
about the social and economic status of Black Americans over the past three years.

A non-partisan initiative harnessing the power of over 100 influential Black
organizations, Unity 04 is determined to increase Black voter turnout and make sure each
vote is counted on Election Day. Participating organizations in the campaign represent a
membership base of close to 15 million.

“We’ve identified the issues and developed a plan to maximize the resources of the
participating organizations. We must address the critical issues facing Black America at
the national, state and local levels. Unity 04 is about empowerment,” said Marc Morial,
president of National Urban League.

The poll, conducted by Dr. Silas Lee of Dr. Silas Lee & Associates, found that Black
American voters feel a prevailing sense of despair that jobs, public education, health
care, availability of affordable housing and civil liberties have gotten worse over the
past three years.

There are 15 million registered Black voters and about 9 million unregistered. Unity 04s
goal is to register one million new voters and increase Black voter turnout five percent
in targeted states.

Among the target states are Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Ohio, Pennsylvania and South
Carolina, all of which have a Black voting age population that can influence the outcome
of a close election.

Unity 04 partners have longstanding relationships and credibility in the Black community.
They include the National Urban League, 100 Black Men of America, Lawyers Committee for
Civil Rights Under Law, UniverSoul Circus, and the National Pan Hellenic Council of
Presidents, an organization that unites nine Greek fraternities and sororities. Media
partners like The Tom Joyner Morning Show and American Urban Radio Network, will help to
disseminate the message to over 30 million listeners across the country. More info at
