Similar to the founders of the National Office, the Montclair unit was spirited by a few concerned and caring residents, who vehemently opposed the status quo and set out to demand justice and equality in education, housing, employment and health care. They fought not just for themselves but for all Montclair residents.From that time forward, the Montclair Branch NAACP has been outspoken where iss ues regarding social justice are concerned. We believe that challenging the system requires the same level of courage and determination that was exerted back in 1916 in order to preserve and maintain those liberties, protect the NAACP legacy and continue to advocate for the civil rights of all people.
I believe all Americans have equal rights and equal value.I cherish the diverse cultures, beliefs, and values of America.I believe we can disagree without being disagreeable.I repudiate all acts of racism and hate, both in words and action.I have faith in the promise of America - a promise built on mutual respect, common civility, and hope for a better tomorrow.I commit to building that better America by participating actively and peacefully in the democratic process.
