Owens said it made "perfect sense" to team up. Owens said no one will be let go from Blexit and it's real integration.
I think that people need to be reminded of how big Blexit is," Kirk said, "it really has become a powerhouse."
"We want to continue and bring this to the next level," Kirk said, noting that the Blexit programs on campuses will be integrated with TPUSA programs as well.
In the Spaces, Owens and Kirk revealed that they first met in California when they were speaking at the same event, and Kirk immediately offered her a job. He said he realized right away she would be "one of the biggest voices" in the American conservative movement.
Owens and Tatum will retain and strengthen their roles, as well, and will continue to manage the vision and direction of the organization, which is dedicated to "shifting culture through electric live events, thoughtful grassroots organizing, and inspiring educational initiatives. BLEXIT stands for the 'Black Exit' from the victimhood mentality."
"Charlie and I have known each other for a long time," Owens said. "And we’ve been discussing our shared goals and visions for this country—to empower people—to embrace freedom and value faith and family. We both realize that we are stronger together. By joining together, we believe this will be a force multiplier for both BLEXIT and for TPUSA."
“I look forward to the new direction and partnership between BLEXIT and TPUSA," Tatum said, "and I am excited about the possibility of new opportunities this could bring to the black community in America. Since the beginning, BLEXIT has been about reaching more people who need to see themselves as victors, not victims, empowered, not oppressed. If just a small fraction of the black community in America catch the vision, we can change the entire country."
BLEXIT has founded 44 State Chapters across the country, has over 14,000 volunteer members, and more than 60,000 supporters. BLEXIT also hosts 4 annual events that serve as gathering points for leaders who want to restore and renew traditional values within black and urban communities.
