As we join the millions across America mourning the lives and unnecessary deaths of the ten people murdered at Tops Market on Saturday, we stand before you with a clear message.
The domestic terrorism and violence perpetuated by those espousing white supremacist ideologies attacks the very foundations of our nation.
It’s simple: No one is free until the rights and safety of ALL Americans are fully guaranteed, REGARDLESS of race, ethnicity, or religion.
"They've taken our voting rights, they've gone after our healthcare, and now they're coming after our reproductive rights.
Which right are they going to overturn next?
They've hijacked the courts to roll our nation back to a dangerous, dangerous era. Indeed, they are attacking the will of the majority with surgical precision.
We feel the fear. We feel the anger.
We've been here before, and there's no way we're ever going back. The fight is on. Our democracy and our rights are quite literally on the edge of cliff."
103 YEARS STRONG
An anniversary puts a pin on the calendar to remind us of something that matters to us. As we celebrate our 103rd Anniversary we will pause to recognize the significant milestones in our history and to take the time to reflect on our journey to the present. Throughout the year not only will we celebrate the milestones but we will recognize and acknowledge the members of our branch and our community that helped to make those milestones possible. Their lights continue to shine and each month we will spotlight them throughout our celebration.
The Vision and Mission of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is to ensure a society in which all individuals have equal rights without discrimination based on race; to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate racial hatred.
We have a long and honorable tradition of social justice in this country. As a branch of the nation’s foremost, largest, and most widely recognized civil rights organization we embrace the objectives of our parent organization and stand together in our fight for freedom and equality.
The fight for equal rights and equality are far from over and the fight for freedom is not free. Join us in the war against the racial disparities that are still too prevalent in America. West Chester, PA branch #2292.
