The NAACP 113th National Convention is underway!
Programming kicked off on July 14 and will continue to July 20, 2022, in Atlantic City after two years of virtual programming.
"For two weeks, the nation's most prominent advocacy and social justice organization will bring together elected officials, activists, organizers, faith leaders, and entertainers for workshops and discussions to promote solutions to some of the most pressing issues facing Black communities today, including voter suppression, student debt, police brutality, and reproductive rights," the NAACP said in a press release.
"Each year, the NAACP provides a platform for concerned citizens to step away from the front lines of the fight for civil rights to reflect, learn from each other, and plot the path forward," the statement continued. "Past conventions have featured Presidents and Vice Presidents, leading Members of Congress and Senators, activists, and organizers offering an opportunity to carve out the vital work we have to do to build a prosperous future as the nation faces competing civil rights crises and continues to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic."
