About Us

America's Opportunity Fund (AOF) is a 527 Political Action Committee. Founded in 2007 by then Governor Gary Locke and Secretary Norman Mineta, AOF’s mission is to support federal and statewide candidates and elected officials who represent the interests of communities of color, and who inspire participation in government for the benefit of all Americans.
 
The goals of AOF are to affect a marked increase in the number of elected officials who embrace and understand the needs of communities of color; generate significant funds to support its mission in targeted states throughout the country; and increase voter visibility and participation to support AOF endorsed candidates to achieve victory.
