Highlights from 2021 Long Beach Real Men Wear Pink

ACS & LB Branch NAACP organized a Real Mean Wear Pink event in November 2021. The breakfast has raised over $6000 and is still growing. We will keep the fight going to eradicate breast cancer. Another goal is help alleviate the suffering of African American women who experience a higher mortality rate from breast cancer than other women in our country.
