On behalf of the entire Chicago Westside Branch NAACP membership, I am pleased to introduce you to the Chicago Westside Branch NAACP.
As I think about our Branch, I’d like to say it’s an honor to have the opportunity to serve as the President. I’m grateful to those past Presidents and Executive Board members who have worked and devoted personal resources to lend to the vision that makes the NAACP the nation’s oldest, largest and most widely recognized grassroots-based civil rights organization.
In a nation where people of color are, by design, disproportionately represented in impoverished, high crime, undereducated, and divested communities, the Chicago Westside Branch NAACP must fight for equality and an equitable distribution of resources in numerous areas.
We pursue this challenge because it is an essential goal for any civil rights organization, but particularly for the Chicago Westside Branch NAACP, a branch willing and capable to be a voice for the voiceless and light for all.
We must tell our community’s story clearly, consistently and effectively. We must promote a positive and accurate image of those we serve. I invite you to join us, as a prospective member, sponsor, donor, or friend.
Karl A. Brinson
