During our time attending the NAACP convention as a national partner, we were reminded about the importance of joining forces across organizations to tackle racism, bigotry, sexism, xenophobia, white nationalism, white supremacy, voter suppression, and intimidation. We focused our dialogue around the expansion of our civic engagement with a re-ignited laser-focus on voter mobilization.
The NAACP convention theme, “When We Fight, We Win”, is a testament to our resilience. We applaud our Sorors who are participating in the NAACP NEXTGEN Young Professionals Leadership Development Program. Sorors Elaina Hamilton, Shazneka Blue, and our very own Phi Sigma Soror Mahasin Salim-Chambers are being armed with the knowledge around leadership fundamentals pertaining to get out the vote (GOTV), voter registration, political action, criminal justice, and economic empowerment. We appreciate our National Social Action Chair, Anita Laster Mays, Esq., for representing the sisterhood at the National NAACP and Urban League Conventions.
