We have come a long, long way, but we still have a long way to go. More than ever we as individuals and as a community need to make a stand for human rights for all persons, especially for people of color. The NAACP is not a political organization, in that it does not support political candidates, but it does support legislation and policies to promote equal rights.

We are concerned that people committed the hate crime of setting a church on fire in Masachusetts last November. We are concerned about the foreclosure crisis and the impact that it has on our communities. We are concerned about the education of ourselves and our young people. We are concerned that housing is no longer affordable for many people. The MVB NAACP needs your support to address these and other important issues.

We need to build a caring community throughout the Merrimack Valley area. I am sure there are many concerned people here, but we need to communicate and work together. This website can be the basis of this community, but we need you to become a member of the Branch to support the website and sign up to receive emails and other important information.

We need your help to promote and help in the activities that create community and interest in the NAACP such as our Lowell Folk Festival Food Booth, the Martin Luther King, Jr. Breakfast, Black History Month, and the New England Civil Rights Hall of Fame.

Stand up for Freedom. Become a member of the Merrimack Valley Branch NAACP. Please go the the members page and join now or come to our next monthly meeting.
