The national Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) rose up to fight racism on February 12, 1909, the 100th anniversary of the birth of Abraham Lincoln.
For the NAACP, today is Founders Day. I get e-mail:
Today marks the 103rd birthday of the NAACP.
For more than a century, Americans have relied on the NAACP to right the nation’s injustices, often against seemingly impossible odds. From ending the barbaric practice of lynching to dismantling segregation to fighting for equality of opportunity for all Americans, the NAACP’s first century changed the world. And our second will be no different..
Founders’ Day has always been a time for reflection and renewal for the NAACP family. We are grounded in our past and focused firmly on the future.
Please join us Wednesday, February 15 for an historic phone briefing hosted by the leadership of the NAACP, as we discuss the next century of NAACP priorities. The call starts at 8:00 PM Eastern/5:00 PM Pacific, and space is limited to the first 5,000 callers. Click on the link below to RSVP, and we will send you call-in details on Wednesday afternoon:
This will be a special event— a shared moment of fellowship with thousands of other members of the NAACP family as we recommit to changing the world, again. Click on the link to RSVP.
Roslyn M. Brock, Chairman, and
