High Point Branch of the NAACP Membership Drive
1909 “Forward together… Not one step back.” 2019
Feb 12, 2019 is the 110th anniversary of the NAACP. Help us celebrate by joining and helping us acquire 110 new members!
The mission of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) is to secure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights in order to eliminate race-based discrimination and ensure the health and well-being of all persons.
Important HIGH POINT NEEDS:
Cure Violence aims to stop the spread of violence in our communities by using the methods and strategies associated with disease control – detecting and interrupting conflicts, identifying and treating the highest risk individuals, and changing social norms.
There is no excuse to say no!
The NAACP supports this program and High Point desperately needs it right now!
