NAACP to Host 110th National Convention in Detroit

NAACP to highlight 110 years of civil rights history, and the current fight for voting rights, criminal justice reform, economic opportunity, education equality & more

 

BALTIMORE — Thousands are expected to gather in Detroit to commemorate the NAACP’s 110th National Convention from July 20-24, 2019. With the theme, “When We Fight, We Win,” the convention will bring together elected officials, members, organizers, faith-leaders, entertainers, and young leaders for workshops and discussions to promote solutions to problems like police brutality, racism, #LivingWhileBlack, voter suppression, partisan gerrymandering and sexual violence and mental health in the Black community.

 

“Much has changed since the creation of the NAACP 110 years ago, and as we highlight these achievements during this year’s convention, we cannot forget that we’re still tirelessly fighting against the hatred and bigotry that face communities of color in this country,” said Derrick Johnson, NAACP President and CEO. “With new threats emerging daily and attacks on our democracy, the NAACP must be more steadfast and immovable than ever before to help create a social-political atmosphere that works for all.”

 

Among the key events, the Presidential Candidates Forum, CEO Roundtable, LGBTQ, Legal and legislative workshops will bring together some of the brightest minds in the Black community and help hone strategies for moving forward in the face of growing racism and an all-out assault on civil rights in this country.

 

Other highlights include the awarding of the prestigious Spingarn Medal, the NAACP ACT-SO (Academic, Cultural, Technical and Scientific Olympics) final competition and awards ceremony, and a career fair.
