ACORN 8 – Public Statement

We the members of the national board of the ACORN 8 formally demand an immediate suspension of all federal, state and local funding of ACORN until after an independent audit and Congressional hearings on ACORN and its related entities. And that all members BOYCOTT ACORN and immediately cease paying their dues until after a forensic examination of ACORN and its related entities.

 

The ACORN 8 is an organization of ACORN leaders; current and former board members who are struggling to reform the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now following the discovery of a multi-million dollar embezzlement.

We are members and leaders in ACORN. The A8 consists of national, state and local board members, presidents or chairs. As such, we are leaders in our communities and in within ACORN. We are typically loyal Democrats and we don’t understand why Democratic leaders have not rallied to help us.

Don't Democrats care about poor people? Don't Democrats care about right and wrong? But regardless of political party affiliation, we all share a passion for helping the underserved and disenfranchised through direct community action.

ACORN is not living up to its original mission; and that is to give meaningful voice and empower low and moderate income members of society. ACORN has been corrupted from its original purpose by senior management and an organizational structure that exploits the low and moderate income membership ACORN was founded to serve.
