THE NAACP HEADS TO LOS ANGELES

 EDITOR'S NOTE: We will have a live webcast of the NAACP Convention starting tomorrow at 9:30 AM PST

 

LOS ANGELES - With the theme of "Affirming America's Promise," the NAACP-- the nation's oldest and largest civil rights organization--- opens it 102nd annual convention in Los Angeles tomorrow.  

 

NAACPBlack News, African American News, Minority News, Civil Rights News, Discrimination, Racism, Racial Equality, Bias, Equality, Afro American News, NAACPThe four-day gathering is expected to generate an economic impact of $11.4 million citywide, with a total of nearly 13,000 hotel rooms expected to be booked for the occasion.

“Over the past century, the NAACP has stood at the forefront of progress — crossing the longest bridges and overcoming the highest hurdles in the pursuit of social justice and the end of discrimination,” Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said in hosting the convention.

The mayor added, “Having such a distinguished and high-profile organization convene in our city for their 102nd anniversary speaks volumes to Los Angeles’ status as a premier convention city.”

The NAACP’s members are dedicated to the fight for social justice and include members of the entertainment industry, civil rights leaders and faith-based leaders. The annual conference, which has previously been attended by President Barack Obama, helps advance policies through Congress and the Senate that are intended to further the civil rights agenda.

“The NAACP is proud to bring our convention to Los Angeles,” stated NAACP Chairman Roslyn M. Brock. “We look forward to continuing the discussion on Civil Rights in this country in L.A. and invite all NAACP members, Californians, and Americans to join us.”

“Los Angeles is a great city and the NAACP is excited to bring our convention to the City of Angels,” added NAACP President Ben Jealous.
