America's Opportunity Fund is having a fun contest:


Tell us in a Twitter post why DIVERSITY matters and you could be one of 3 LUCKY WINNERS to receive a VOICEMAIL GREETING recorded by the one and only GEORGE TAKEI!


While George is known primarily for his epic role as Hikaru Sulu in the "Star Trek" (1966) television series and feature films, he has had an extensive acting career, taking on roles in television, feature films, live theater and radio. As a successful writer and avid community activist, he is a pillar of the AAPI community, with first-hand understanding of the unjust internment of Japanese Americans during World War II.


America's Opportunity Fund (AOF) is a 501 C (4) Political Action Committee. Founded in 2007 by then Governor Gary Locke and Secretary Norman Mineta, AOF’s mission is to support federal and statewide candidates and elected officials who represent the interests of communities of color, and who inspire participation in government for the benefit of all Americans.

The goals of AOF are to affect a marked increase in the number of elected officials who embrace and understand the needs of communities of color; generate significant funds to support its mission in targeted states throughout the country; and increase voter visibility and participation to support AOF endorsed candidates to achieve victory.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
