It is with great excitement today that we announce the launch of "10,000 Catholics for Obama," a grass roots web initiative that will organize support for Barack Obama among Catholics and other people of faith. Available at http://www.catholics4obama.com/, the website is a response to the quick show of enthusiasm that we received for this Facebook page when it was launched in early April.
10,000 Catholics for Obama is an innovative, interactive web site that is intended to turn the page on the way faith and politics typically intersect in an election year. Instead of dividing voters with appeals to narrow issues, users can submit personal prayers, learn more about community service opportunities, and write personal testimonies for Barack Obama.
We hope to continue building a nation-wide movement of Catholics and other people of faith for Barack Obama through the organizing tools on 10,000 Catholics for Obama site.We have already started to organize teams of Catholic leaders in major battleground states. Sign up to become a team leader today by visiting the site, and be sure to spread the word about the site to your friends and families.
Starting this Saturday, we will organize barbecues for Obama across the U.S., entitled "Fired Up, Ready to Grill!" Visit the site and RSVP to host a barbecue or find one in your area. If you cannot attend or host one this Saturday, we will be organizing them throughout the summer.
Thank you for your help!
