1911 United: The super PAC supporting the re-election of President Barack Obama visits Atlanta

Dilemma X

ATLANTA- 1911 United, a super PAC dedicated to mobilizing African American voters in key swing states, arrived in Atlanta on June 9, 2012. Morris Brown College was the site of the 2012 Atlanta Greek Picnic, where 1911 United arrived in Georgia to register 10,000 voters and recruit 4,000 volunteers to help President Barack Obama win a second term. 

Dilemma X was honored to be given an upclose visit with 1911 United and shares this video and photos of their bus campaign tour into metropolitan Atlanta. 

1911 United is founded by the fraternities Kappa Alpha Psi and Omega Psi Phi  http://1911united.com
