In 2008, something big happened. Not only was it a presidential election year, but we elected the first African American president. This marked change in the American society. A long time ago, there was slavery on our land. People thought that black people weren’t as equal to the white man, and thus, treating them like animals.
A Black man in the oval office shows how far we progressed. We went from owning people to owning our freedom.
Barack Obama didn’t do it on his own. He had a ton of help. Form volunteers, to multiple organizations.
One of them is called NGP VAN.
According to their website, they say, “NGP VAN is the leading technology provider to Democratic and progressive campaigns and organizations, offering clients an integrated platform of the best fundraising, compliance, field, organizing, digital, and social networking products.”
They have helped many Democratic candidates be elected into office, such as Senator Elizabeth Warren, to even President Barack Obama.
On their Facebook page, they are very active. But they posted a video that shows pride.
The video is titled “Powering Progress in 2017”, and it shows their true positional.
It starts off by telling us that we have had a big year. We have had the women’s march, and many protests to defend our freedom. It has been a huge year, not just a big.
We turned that energy into politics and turned it into votes. We had republicans scared and almost won.
Because of one thing that they say.
We never gave up and kept going for the next day.
We kept fighting. We organized organizations, we recruited volunteers, and we turned people to get involved who have never done so.
NGP VAN has been there all along, helping the way for the simplest organization. They help Democrats get into office, and help them change America.
