The Harlem-based National Action Network (NAN), a tax-exempt 501c4 advocacy group, runs a project called the Madison Avenue Initiative. A NAN press release explains its purpose:
"Our goal is to create more business alliances between the corporate and government public service sectors and the many viable black and latino-owned agencies and media. We're seeing more opportunities for a greater share of the marketing mix," said Rev. Al Sharpton, founder of the National Action Network. "Another area of concern is hiring and training for black and latino marketing professionals and students. Establishing a process that promotes access and consideration is critical to linking qualified candidates to opportunities."So NAN, an ACORN wannabe group, has "initiated communication with corporate and government executives," eh?
Since March, Sharpton and Madison Avenue Initiative director Munson Steed have initiated communication with corporate and government executives to discuss increased recruitment and engagement.
"We're finding that corporate CEOs are open to discussing ways to engage more of our agencies, media and professionals to help them meet their business goals," said Steed. "We're devoting 2011 to opening more doors and creating more synergy that will be mutually beneficial for all parties." [....]
Was that communication by means of a bullhorn or was it through a threatening letter? Maybe a brick with a note tied to it?

America needs to know that ACORN is restructuring in time to help re-elect President Obama in 2012. Obama used to work for ACORN and represented the group in court as its lawyer. These radical leftists who use the brutal, in-your-face, pressure tactics of Saul Alinsky want to destroy America as we know it and will use any means to do it.
