FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: ATLANTA OMEGAS SCHEDULE VOTER EDUCATION FORUM
The Atlanta-based Eta Omega Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity is hosting a Voter Education Forum on Saturday, October 29th at Elizabeth Baptist Church, 4245 Cascade Road in Southwest Atlanta. The primary topic of this forum, set to run from 11:00AM to 1:00PM, will be Amendment One, the proposed change to Georgia’s constitution which would create the Opportunity School District. Supporters say this proposal would give the state flexibility to deal with so-called “failing schools”. Opponents say it’s a power grab which could lead to public schools being managed and controlled by for-profit companies.
The Omega’s Public Forum will also provide information on Voter’s Rights and Absentee Ballot rules. Elizabeth Baptist Church’s Pastor, Dr. Craig L. Oliver, Sr., belongs to Eta Omega Chapter of Omega Psi Phi. Brother Oliver serves on the chapter’s Government Affairs Committee which organized the forum.
Eta Omega, the first chapter of any Black Greek-letter organization chartered in the state of Georgia, was established in 1919. Through the years active Brothers have included the late civil rights icon Jesse Hill and John Wesley Dobbs, public affairs activist C. Clayton Powell, Atlanta Braves Hall of Famer David Justice, and Atlanta City Council President Ceasar Mitchell.
