Emergence of Emerge USA
This past weekend, U. S. Congressman Keith Ellison provided a boost to EMERGE-USA Fundraiser. While on a private visit to Texas, US Congressman Keith Ellison visited a fundraiser for EMERGE-USA (Empowering Motivating Educating Resourceful Grassroots Entities) held on July 25 to raise funds for the local â€œGet Out To Vote (GOTV) Effortsâ€. The fundraiser was held at the home of State Democratic Executive Committeeman (SDEC) Farrukh Shamsi.
Mr. Ellison encouraged the political activists and community leaders at the event to contribute generously to EMERGE as the funds would be well utilized for local community political awareness based on EMERGEâ€™s impressive track record in several states and specifically in Houston. He quipped that â€œif you are not on the table, you could be on the menu.â€
