114th National NAACP Convention...Thank You!
With over 13,000 attendees, the 114th NAACP National Convention shattered records and expectations across the region!
We welcomed thousands to the HUB July 28-July 30th; engaged with community based organizations in Roxbury, Dorchester, and Mattapan; secured several game changing contracts for women and Black owned businesses; and members engaged in rigorous debate on issues important to Black America. By all metrics this unprecedented convening had unprecedented impact, and we could not have done it without you!
Stay tuned for photos and videos from this historic event!
We invite our volunteers and members to join us on August 28th for a cookout so we can say...Thank you!"
