Black Organizations are going to face a difficult time, if a few key things do not change quickly and methodically. Regardless of your political perspectives, it is undeniable that there is a combative tone between the Trump Administration and anyone who disagrees with it. And it would be naive to think that there will never be an issue of contention between the Trump Administration and the myriad Black Organizations addressing various aspects of Black life in America. Black Organizations will need all hands on deck! That’s one of the reasons we’ve launched our sweepstakes. Whether you belong to Divine Nine fraternities & sororities, the NAACP/Urban League, Black Professional Associations (i.e. Executive Leadership Council, National Association of Black Accountants, National Organization of Blacks in Law Enforcement, and etc.)…they each have Annual Conventions. And we all need to be engaged. Through this sweepstakes, BWP is offering you the chance to win the registration fees (up to $500.00) for yourself to attend the 2017 Convention of your choice. And the sweepstakes runs through the end of February, so there’s still time to enter! Click here to enter The Major Need for Black Organizations is Financing!
