EPU will be an inclusive organization for anyone of any party affiliation---Republicans, Democrats and Independents---who share the same types of values and want to promote certain issues that will keep America safe and strong. EPU is an issue driven organization. It will provide opportunities for all ethnic and minority groups to dialogue and seek cross organization assistance on particular issues. In particular, EPU will press for full participation of ethnic and minority people in the 2012 Presidential campaigns in terms of hiring practices, delegate selection process to national conventions, and platform committee assignments.
Our mission will be to plan, organize and execute seven (7) Regional Command Centers across the nation. We will unite a network of already established organizations to provide grass-roots training and issue-oriented, strategic communications.
EPU will become a change agent in the areas of church, business, and politics through protection of the family. It will accomplish this by identifying ethnic and minority candidates; assisting incumbents with a biblical worldview; organizing, training and managing a diverse group of coalitions specifically designed to assist organizations with a biblically conservative worldview; and eventually the selected nominee for president.
Make room for a new America…one that is of the people, by the people, and for all the people!
