Welcome to the Long Beach Branch of the NAACP

Since its inception, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) was poised for a long, tumultuous and rewarding history. Although it may be possible to chronicle the challenging and harrowing legacy of the NAACP, the real story of the nation's most significant civil rights organization lies in the hearts and minds of the people who would not stand still while the rights of some of America's darker citizens were denied.

Your Vote, Your Voice

The Statewide Direct Primary Election has past. Did you place your ballot, make your vote, and let your voice be heard? A voteless people are a hopeless people. Beyond just placing a ballot, there is a need for us as individuals and a community to vote for candidates who have the good of the people in their hearts and mind. To make a knowledgeable decision we must first know who is running for the various offices. The Long Beach Branch NAACP urges you to learn about the people running to represent you and about their platform. It is our responsibility to put into place those who represent and fight for the good in society to positions of power to help maintain and progress our communities. Read your ballots and learn more about the candidates and measures above. Let your voice be heard, and make your vote count.

-------------------------

Long Beach Branch NAACP encourages members to attend community meetings including: City Council Meetings, Long Beach School Board Meetings, the CSU Board of Trustees Open Meetings and Long Beach City College Board Meetings.
