Rep. West Hosts Conservative Black Forum
Rep. Allen West (FL-22)
Today, Rep. Allen West hosted the Conservative Black Forum to discuss issues regarding unemployment in the black community, conservative values, and the social disparity in urban communities.
"The conservative voice in the black community remains mostly unacknowledged by politicians and the public alike," West said. "While the conservative black voice has always existed, it is more important than ever that it be recognized and encouraged. More than 95 percent of black voters voted Democrat in the last election. I am hoping this forum will begin to shed light on how we can change this status quo."
In addition to Rep. West, distinguished members of the panel include:
