“… And Justice For All …”

The NAACP Worcester Branch wants you!

Join us at our next Community meeting!

Monday, May 23

6:30 pm

At the YWCA, Salem Sq. 

Since 2013, the Worcester NAACP has focused our work on voter education, voter registration, candidate forums, youth safety workshops, education forums, housing forums, and advocating for those who have been discriminated against. 

It is now time for us to reflect and check in with the community to make sure we are working on issues that matter most to our community.

We want your ideas on what direction you feel the NAACP should go to address the challenges in our community!

We want your commitment and passion to fight for social justice!

We want to work together to make Worcester a place of opportunity and equality for all!

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you all this Monday!
