Ready For Hillary Launches ‘Black Americans Program’

Ready For Hillary, the super PAC dedicated to supporting a potential presidential bid by Hillary Clinton, announced on Monday the launch of a “Black Americans program.”

A statement released by the group said the program will “build upon many of the successful strategies implemented during the 2008 and 2012 presidential campaigns including organizing with barbershops and beauty salons, small businesses, DJs, nightclub promoters, and civic organizations.”

Ready For Hillary also plans to announce what it called a National Black Americans Advisory Council this month comprised of individuals who will “assist in its efforts working in the black community.”
