MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT
On behalf of the Stockton Branch NAACP, it is with much gratitude and thankfulness that I have the opportunity to serve as the current President of the Branch. We continue to strive to change the course of history as we advocate for social, educational, political, economic, health and wellness changes. The NAACP has had a long and glorious history. I count it one of the privileges of my life to have been asked to attempt to contribute to the NAACP history as President.
During the past year we have embarked on a number of projects to achieve a more positive and unified approach to improving civil and human rights. We launched our “REACH” Healthy Initiative. This year, we increased our efforts related to the issue of health disparities among African Americans especially and people of color. We also advocated for improved educational opportunities for our children and pressed against housing violations and advocated to promote more economic development projects. Our Criminal Justice Committee launched a new “Know Your Rights” series to ensure that the community and especially our youth are better informed. None of these efforts would be possible without the support of individuals and local businesses that continue to make contributions to the cause of civil rights and equal opportunity for all.
