Dear APRI Activists, Bus Captains & Youth
Congratulations to all of you who wore that "Outrageous Orange" on 10-2-10!
Words cannot express how very proud I was, personally, of the
commitment shown by you, the leaders of APRI, in organizing across the country
to turn out more than 600 APRI activists to be present at the rally.
At last count, there were 260 youth and 376 adults from APRI who
checked in on the mall. We do know that many of you did not get to report
in at either of the table locations.....but we saw you ......and all of you
looked really good! You held Mr. Randolph's name high!
A special thanks you goes out to Warren
