V.O.I.C.E.S. NW to kickoff TAKE BACK AMERICA TOUR, 2004

(PORTLAND, OR) V.O.I.C.E.S. NW announced today that it will hold the kickoff for the TAKE BACK AMERICA TOUR, 2004 on Monday, June 7th, at the First Unitarian Church, 1011 SW 12th, Portland, in the Channing Room.
Responding to concern over the upcoming presidential election, V.O.I.C.E.S. NW will drive across the country, visiting many of the states expected to be critical in the effort to take back the White House, and take back America, in November. The group hopes to elevate awareness about how and why the Bush administration's policies have taken this country in a radically wrong direction and encourage others to participate in the election process in every way possible.

V.O.I.C.E.S. NW is a local, grassroots organization dedicated to ensuring that George W. Bush is re-defeated. The group is committed to focusing the attention of Americans on the dangerous, undemocratic, and often, illegal methods of the Bush administration. "It is our desire to see America return to a county we can be proud of, with the moral standing in the world community we once enjoyed, and filled with hope for our children's future," says spokesperson, Linda Wiener. Travel in the BushBGone Mobile will begin in Portland and continue through the swing states of Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Missouri, Arkansas, Tennessee and Virginia. A return trip through the more northern swing states is planned for September. V.O.I.C.E.S NW plans to meet with local elected officials and other activist groups, attend political events, provide information and register voters.

"For many Americans, the re-defeat of George W. Bush is not an option. It is a mandate. We will do everything in our power to help other Americans understand why this is so critical to the future of our country," says spokesperson, Linda Wiener.

V.O.I.C.E.S. NW IS A VOLUNTARY ACTIVIST GOUP FOUNDED IN 2003 FOR THE PURPOSE OF ON-THE-GROUND ACTIVISM FOR THE RE-DEFEAT OF GEORGE W BUSH. Please visit our website at www.voicesnw.org.
