FORMER DEMOCRATIC CONGRESSMAN ARTUR DAVIS TO HEADLINE SEPT. 19 RECEPTION AT THE HERITAGE FOUNDATION HOSTED BY MOVE-ON-UP.ORG WASHINGTON, D.C. (September 6, 2012) –
Move-On-Up.org and the Black Republican Congressional Staff Association announce “An Evening with Artur Davis,” a September 19 reception set to occur near Capitol Hill at the conservative think tank, The Heritage Foundation.
The evening will be attended by notable Black conservative politicians. Also scheduled to speak are Congress’ two Black Republican members, Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) and Rep. Tim Scott (R-S.C.).
Former Rep. Davis made national news in May when he announced he was leaving the Democratic Party, saying, “If I were to leave the sidelines, it would be as a member of the Republican Party that is fighting the drift in this country in a way that comes closest to my way of thinking: wearing a Democratic label no longer matches what I know about my country and its possibilities.”

Move-On-Up.org is a St. Louis, Missouri-based grassroots organization with members in 43 states. Its mission is to find and organize the millions of Black conservatives on the political sidelines. Four percent of African Americans voted for Sen. McCain in 2008 but that four percent equates to a total of 800,000 African Americans who did not cast their vote for the president.
"I am so excited that Congressmen Davis, West, and Scott will be joining our reception in Washington. I highly admire these great men and am honored they have chosen to support Move-On-Up.org's important mission," said Move-On-Up.org co-founder Christopher Arps.
ABOUT MOVEONUP.ORG Move-On-Up.org was founded as a social network in December 2008 as a centralized meeting place for African Americans to network, share ideas, and find camaraderie in conservative ideas as a reflection of the more than 2 million Black conservatives that exist in America, according to election statistics. In two years, the network grew to more than 800 members in 43 states.
