In 2019 I Will . . .

President and CEO – NAACP

At the beginning of every new year, many of us make resolutions in hopes of improving ourselves.

Some people aim to work out more and change to healthier diets, while others strive to take on new adventures and travel more.

And then there are those who aspire to change lives and do more to make a difference in their local communities and across our country.

For those of you who’ve resolved to make your neighborhoods and America better, I can’t think of a better way for you to achieve your goal than by becoming a member of the NAACP today.

As a member of the nation’s foremost civil rights organization, you’ll be taking your support for us one step further and standing on the right side of history, joining with others who have answered the call to defend civil rights.

From fighting to reform our criminal justice system to strengthening political power in communities of color to making sure that every person who works earns a livable wage, NAACP members are on the frontlines of making our union more just and more equal.

So, if moving your community and our country toward a brighter future is on your list of resolutions for 2019, joining the NAACP right now is an excellent way to stick to at least one of your resolutions this year.

With you as our newest member, we’ll be able to do even more this year to continue transforming America into the country it should be—a country that values the concerns, aspirations, and contributions of all of its people.

President and CEO
