Now is the time for all of us to go back to our roots

Now is the time for all of us to go back to our roots

See the below letter from Cornell Brooks, President, NAACP. Our support is needed more than ever.

--------------------------------------

Surely, America can do better. 

The recent election has revitalized hate and racism in ways we haven't seen in a long time. So much so, that President-elect Donald Trump feels comfortable nominating a racist we've fought against decades ago for a federal judgeship. Even worse Trump has named a person supported by Neo-Nazis and White Supremacists as his chief strategist.

These are not normal times, and we need your support to keep in check those who want to return us to an America where state-sponsored hate and xenophobia was acceptable. We've come too far to turn back now.

Supporters like you have recently made a major difference: the NAACP has won ten court cases against voter suppression, passed a law enabling the DOJ to hold the Ferguson Police Department accountable, and sought justice for the children poisoned with lead-tainted water in Flint. 

Your generous contribution of $10, $50, $100, $500 or even more gives the NAACP the means to mobilize millions of Americans to push Congress to restore the Voting Rights Act, protect our civil rights, and establish accountability for those guilty of police brutality. We will join the fight in the courts and across the country to oppose any attempts to force millions of people to register with the government simply because they share a religion or ethnicity.

When Americans elect a president, we "de-elect" neither ourselves as citizens nor our ability to speak truth to power.

Donate today and help us fight back!
