Vote 2016



Dr. Hazel Dukes

On behalf of the NAACP New York State Conference officers,staff and myself, I want to take this opportunity to wish you and yours, branch officers and members a Blessed, Healthy and Prosperous 2015. We should all give thanks for the bountiful blessings poured upon the NAACP New York State Conference throughout 2014. As we pause and review this past year.

I commend branch leadership, those who answered calls to action, participated in conference activities and continue to address the five game changers: Increasing memberships, the life-blood of the Association; held public forums on education, school board elections, voter registration and Get Out the Vote campaigns for the primary and general election, health information on dates of enrollment for affordable health care, Michael Brown and Eric Garner marches and vigils, testifying at hearings and visiting local elected officials.
