President’s Message

Bruce photoWelcome to the New Brunswick Area Branch National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, NBAB-NAACP. 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 an especially busy year for the NBAB-NAACP because our National government’s administration has demonstrated their intent to thwart equality and justice for all women and men through legislation, misinformation and blatant lies. Voting rights, a fair and impartial justice system, access to affordable health care, high quality public education and many other services provided by our government are under attack.

The NBAB-NAACP as well as our National Leadership believes it is critical for 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 fighting to ensure anyone eligible to vote does not have their franchise infringed upon.

We are continuing our efforts to register voters far and wide. We even have a 24-hour national telephone hotline established to answer any questions about voting the public may have; the 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 remains committed to work with local governmental entities to facilitate cooperation, support and harmony between them and our community. The NBAB-NAACP has and will take actions including support of lawsuits against entities, public and private, on behalf of individuals and groups for discriminatory hiring, employment practices, segregated public facilities and housing inequities. Supporting law enforcement in protecting our community is vital; however, when determined necessary we have investigated and called for action by the US Attorney General’s Office along with the FBI relating to police misconduct.

The youth of our community is our future and we vow to always support and mentor them.  Find out about more about the premier NAACP New Brunswick ACT-SO program at www.newbrunswickareanaacp.org

The NBAB-NAACP continues to join forces and recommit alliances with other organizations and houses of worship where there is common interest for equality and justice.

I invite you 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 Avenues.

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 largest and the oldest, the baddest and boldest, the most loved and most hated, most feared and revered, most cussed and most discussed civil right organization in America’, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. GET INVOLVED! WE NEED YOU!

In unity,
Bruce S. Morgan, President
