What Does The Letters That Make Up ACORN Mean? For Those Who Like To Toss The Name Around, But Are Clueless
ACORN, a grassroots organization, is making headlines for voters registration fraud. As always, an organization that has helped thousands for the better good, has hit a snag and is being exploited for a political cause.
But to all those who had never heard of or had to use the services of ACORN, what does the acronym stand for?
ACORN is short for The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now. Being that it is a “community organization” and we know how Gov. Palin feels about those, it is no wonder that ACORN would be thrown into the campaign to blindside Americans.
I and many, many others have used the services of ACORN and are grateful that they speak up for those who are ignored and forgotten. Regardless of what is going on right now, ACORN reps are still helping low income people to find housing, fight their slumlords, fill out job applications, get food and medical assistance, childcare, etc.
And when the election season is over and a new President sworn in, ACORN will still serve urban communities and citizens in need. In a few months, America will forget about ACORN and the low income to zero income folks they help.
