Leaders will address the community during the NAACP recognition of Public Education Month. They will also report on new education programs and other educational programs of their systems.
The Long Beach Branch NAACP annually celebrates Public Education Month and recognizes the people who work with our students in the public education setting. This is done because we believe all students deserve access to a quality education. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) was formed in 1909 by a group of black and white citizens, in response to injustice that many Americans confronted solely because of race. Today, the NAACP, the oldest and largest civil rights organization in the world, continues to focus major efforts at increasing voter empowerment, educational excellence and individual responsibility, thus creating an infrastructure for economic and social development and new effective ways to develop young leaders. The NAACP is non-partisan.
This meeting is open to the public. Please RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org to attend.
