October 6, 2016 at 12:26 PM (PT)
The NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF BLACK OWNED BROADCASTERS (NABOB), NATIONAL COALITION ON BLACK CIVIC PARTICIPATION (NCBCP), and AMERICAN URBAN RADIO NETWORKS (AURN) have collaborated to produce a series of ‘GET OUT THE VOTE’ PSA’s targeted to urban formatted stations across America.
The seven 30-second spots are aimed at encouraging African Americans to go to the polls on Election Day NOVEMBER 8th and vote.
NABOB Pres. JIM WINSTON said, “The Presidential and Congressional races being contested this year will impact this country for much longer than the next four years. The shape of the SUPREME COURT is going to be determined by the President and members of Congress who win these elections. The African-American community is going to be very significantly impacted by the results of these elections, and it is extremely important that we get our listeners out to vote.”
NCBCP Pres./CEO MELANIE L. CAMPBELL added, we are proud to partner with AURN and NABOB on the 'GET OUT THE VOTE' PSA Campaign, in support of our UNITY ’16 BLACK VOTER EMPOWERMENT CAMPAIGN. We must ensure that the Black voter turns out in record numbers on NOVEMBER 8th. The results of the 2016 elections will shape our national political landscape for years to come, with the next President having the power to nominate at least two to three SUPREME COURT Justices and hundreds of Federal Judges that will determine laws that will impact health care, criminal justice, economic parity, voting rights and much more. These PSAs are designed to assist our UNITY ’16 CAMPAIGN to educate, motivate, and inform African-American communities across the country on the dramatic impact their votes will have on their families and communities for at least 30 years.”
