In February it was announced that “ACORN has dissolved as a national structure of state organizations.” If that’s the case why is ACORN still trying to raise money, and what do they plan to do with it? Matthew Vadum has the fundraising appeal from ACORN head Bertha Lewis that was sent out last week:
ACORN is not dead!
ACORN is alive because you are alive and still fighting for justice. Over the past 40 years, ACORN members have been through a lot in the fight to empower working families and families of color — and it has been the commitment of people like you, regular folks doing extraordinary things, that has made it possible.
Again, more evidence that the organization isn’t going away.
