During the first 100 days, we recommend the Biden-Harris administration implement policies in racial equity, economic empowerment, education, environmental climate justice, health and wellbeing, reconstructing criminal justice, and voting rights and election reform. Black America Policy Recommendations.
President Biden, we agree with you. We can no longer ‘wait another minute’ to act on the gun violence epidemic. That is why the NAACP is calling on Congress to immediately ban assault weapons. Preventable deaths have been the tragic result of paralyzed progress. As our nation prepares to reopen, the lives of innocent Americans depend on expeditious action.”
The core element of discrimination and bias, whether based on race, gender, nationality, or other characteristics, is the dehumanization and “othering”
of people. This assumes all individuals within these categories are the same and are all of less value than those making these judgments.
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.
