I am a Bergen Community College student who is re-starting the NAACP Chapter at my college. It has been inactive for about 15 years and I need 25 due paying members to get it re-started. As I’ve been speaking with students about joining I am finding out that a lot of young people don’t know about the NAACP at all. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is a 102 year old social justice membership group. The NAACP’s mission is to ensure the, “political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate race-based discrimination.” There are many students of color at Bergen, and I know that many of us struggle with financial and other issues. We should have the backing of this organization to ease our path through life.
The cost is low and the benefits are great!
If you are a BCC student and want to join or get involved email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can make arrangements to meet and get you signed up. Visit us on FB at Social Justice at BCC page or visit our website. The annual membership is $10-30, but if that’s a hardship let me know – I may be able to help. When you join bring ideas the group can work on – the more ideas the more productive we can be.
