This organization was established in recognition of the hopes, the aspirations, and the needs of African American Democrats in Stark County. We seek to promote, foster, and sponsor education, civic and political activities of the state and communities through the efforts of members of the Stark County Black Caucus. To foster and encourage within the black community loyalty to and faith in the American Constitution; to participate actively in constructive social and political action for the promotion and safeguarding of the interests and general welfare within the community; to cultivate and improve the civic stance within Stark County communities; and to provide a mechanism by which aspirants for political forces may be heard; evaluated, endorsed, or sponsored for political office at all levels of government. In the achievement of this task, we shall oppose all those who would violate respect for human dignity and enslave the human soul, racial persecution, intolerance, selfishness, and greed have no place in the human family. We shall combat those things with the same resoluteness with which we shall also oppose all those who use power to exploit black people and other minorities. Grateful for the traditions of our past and confident of the future, we dedicate ourselves to maintaining and extending liberty and opportunity for all and, entreating divine guidance, we proclaim our Constitution.
We are “Seeing Beyond… To Inspire Change.”
