State of the Branch Report
Presented to the General Membership
February 5, 2009

To the Branch:

It is time for a change. It is an historic time and we have an historic responsibility as a NAACP Branch.

We have done well as a Branch; however, we must meet the current challenge to complete the mission of the NAACP.

We must continue to do what we have done, however, we must do it better. We must communicate, motivate and inspire our community to action.

We must lead the leadership.

Thursday, February 12th, 2009, is the 100th anniversary of the National Association for the Advancement Of Colored People (NAACP); it is a time to celebrate.

We have gone from the “strange fruit” of African American lynchings and the terrorists attack of the black community in Springfield, Illinois, to the Inauguration of the first African American President.

From 1909 to 2009 has been a hard struggle, but a righteous one.

The right to go to any school is soured by the fact that many schools are being re-segregated because of economic disparities.

Our young people are going into prison fasted than they are going into college.

The right to live in any neighborhood is soured because of unfair mortgage practices.

Additionally the cost of housing is too high for many to obtain the hope of homeownership.

There continue to be great disparities in job opportunities and affordable healthcare for many people of color.

We have our work cut out for us and I feel we will meet the challenge, we are truly living in historic times.

Thank you all for your support.
