And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:
And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;
In love for our community and being conscious of its needs, with determination and hard work, we will intentionally give our all to make a difference in our city with Equity, Equality, and Security. You will see a growing change in our NAACP which will reflect in our community in a positive way.
We are stronger together and desire to make changes, and we have the power to do so. We are creating partnerships, relationships, and momentum in the community, which is why your membership is so important. Through your donated time, effort, and knowledge, we will grow and help our society rise above inequity, inequality, and insecurity.
Growing Change in Equity - Business decision-making is a shift in structure, policy, or growth in the economy. We will work with some of our members and community partners with expertise in these areas to empower residents and value our dollar.
Growing Change in Equality – In social and racial justice movements, equality can increase inequities in communities as not every group of people needs the same resources or opportunities allocated to them to thrive. We will host workshops or webinars with an equality focus and discussions throughout the year.
Growing Change in Security – Lack of protection, jobs, inadequacy in education, mental illness, and social conditioning, produces anxiety and fear about our goals, relationships, and ability to handle certain situations in life, such as school, work, and home. We will host multiple workshops with professionals to promote awareness in many areas.
So we are encouraging you as individuals, and as organizations to become members, we are stronger in numbers and diverse in knowledge, and your opinions are needed and matter.
