President’s Message

Bruce photoDear Members, Friends and Supporters of the NAACP:

Welcome to the New Brunswick Area Branch National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, NBAB-NAACP website.

We have served the community with advice, advocacy, resources, forums and educational materials for more than 40 years and will continue to do so in the future.

This has been a very busy year for the NBAB-NAACP because equality and justice has yet to become a way of life for all women and men especially our youth.

 

The NBAB-NAACP has taken actions including support of law suits against entities, public and private in the Greater New Brunswick area on behalf of individuals and groups for discriminatory hiring, employment practices, segregated public facilities and housing inequities. We’ve investigated and called for action by the US Attorney General’s Office along with the FBI relating to police misconduct.

The NBAB-NAACP has also and will continue to work with local governmental entities to facilitate cooperation, support and harmony between them and our community.

The NBAB-NAACP has joined forces and recommitted alliances with other organizations and churches where there is common interest for equality and justice, to urge health care for all, protect the environment and protest against ill-advised and unjust wars. Some of the organizations we’ve joined forces with, but not limited to, have been;

• Fair Share Housing Center
• Crossroads Theater Company
• Peoples’ Organization for Progress (POP)
• New Jersey Communities Forward
• NJPAC
• South Asian Community Organization (SACO)
• New Labor

The youth of our community is our future and we vow to always support and mentor them. Find out about more about the NAACP New Brunswick ACT-SO program at: ACT-SO New Jersey  (or contact us).

This year, the NBAB-NAACP as well as our National Leadership believes it’s critical for American citizens who have the right to vote, do vote. In a democratic society the power of the vote and exercising that right is paramount to maintaining a free society. We are ensuring anyone eligible to vote does not have their franchise infringed upon.

We are continuing our efforts to register voters far and wide. We are holding voter education seminars. We even have a 24 hour national telephone hotline established to answer any questions about voting the public may have. That number is 1-866-MYVOTE1 (1-866-698-6831). Of course, you may contact the NBAB-NAACP directly at, 732-828-5363 or by email, newbrunswickareanaacp@gmail.com

The NBAB-NAACP will continue to offer 24 hour/365 day telephone Hotline Service, 732-828-5363 to provide assistance to community members.

You are invited to attend our General Membership meetings which are held on the 3rd Tuesday of every month at the Reformed Church of Highland Park, 19 South 2nd Avenue, Highland Park, NJ 08904 at 7:00 PM. Parking is available behind the church and can be accessed from Rosa Parks Way (Magnolia Street) between 2nd & 3rd Aves.

I am always open to suggestions and ideas from the public. You can contact me at; 732.828.5363, USPS – PO Box 235, New Brunswick, NJ 08903 or newbrunswickareanaacp@gmail.com.

We encourage you to join the oldest and boldest civil right organization, National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.

In unity,

Bruce S. Morgan, President
