RPM Announces New Somali American Affiliate Group
(Minneapolis, Minn)– The Republican Party of Minnesota (RPM) Chairwoman Jennifer Carnahan released the following statement regarding RPM’s new Somali American Affiliate group.
“We are pleased to welcome the Somali American Republicans of Minnesota to our Affiliate groups. The Somali community is growing and getting increasingly involved in state politics. I look forward to listening to the community’s thoughts and concerns and including Affiliate leaders in the Party process,” Carnahan said.
The Somali American Republicans of Minnesota Affiliate group (SARM) was approved by the RPM State Central Committee (SCC) at its meeting April 29th. In addition, the other eight operating Affiliate groups were re-approved by the SCC.
The current Affiliates are the SARM, Asian American Republicans of Minnesota, Minnesota College Republicans, Minnesota Federation of Republican Women, Hispanic Republican Assembly of Minnesota, Minnesota Republican Seniors, Minnesota Young Republicans, Minnesota Organization of Republican Veterans, Republican Liberty Caucus of Minnesota, and the developing Affiliates are in the African American and faith communities.
“I am proud to welcome SARM as our newest Affiliate group,” Republican Party of Minnesota Secretary and Director of Affiliate Outreach Barb Sutter said. “Our Groups do not exist simply for the sake of diversity, but to share and promote our Republican values. The addition of SARM and the reapproval of each of our Affiliates shows progress in our goal to communicate effectively throughout Minnesota and across demographic, cultural and geographic lines.”
