The Task Force established by OCO is pleased to invite you to a public meeting of all Oromo’s in Washington DC Metropolitan area to discuss the status of the community, and chart ways of strengthening and building the community in the spirit of Oromummaa.
This meeting is a follow up of our meeting of October 21, 2017 called by Oromo Community Organization Task Force. As those of you who were at the October meeting recall, the meeting took stock of the current state of our community at large and the community organization using SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats) analysis and recommended the Task Force to continue its effort of reaching out to all Oromo religious, regional, self-help organizations and associations in the greater DCM region and to call an at large meeting within a short period of time with the objective of broadening the exchange of ideas and enhance collaboration among those who are committed to building healthy and productive community organization that will serve the community.
It is the Task Force belief that the community members are best positioned to determine the future of the community organization by addressing the concerns of its members. We hope that we can put in place a new and creative means of re-building our organization on renewed Oromummaa, where there is healthy dialogue focused on achieving common goal. We believe that the way forward requires change in both the behaviors of large numbers of individuals and groups in ways they relate to the community organization and address their misgivings and concern.
The success of this meeting depends mostly on the quality of participation and the dynamics of the discussion in order to arrive at the desired results. Therefore, we would empress upon you that your presence and participation is very important to building the Oromo Community Organization that all of us can see ourselves in it.
Let us work in unison to revitalize OCO as an organization with clear vision and mission the time demands. Guided by principles of inclusiveness and transparency to deliver services that benefit all community members.
As we don’t have extensive database of Oromos in Washington Metro area, your assistance in sharing this information with other Oromos for whom we do not have contact information is highly appreciated.
