This September, the NAACP State Area Conference of Alaska Oregon and Washington will be hosting its two-day Annual Convention in Spokane, Washington. We will celebrate past
accomplishments, discuss current challenges, and unify around defending civil rights in our region. The pinnacle of the weekend’s event is the keynoted Freedom Fund Celebration Dinner with the theme
of Defeat Hate – VOTE!

Our region continues to be lead the nation on issues that strengthen our communities like reducing employment discrimination through ban the box ordinances and stimulating economic development by
raising the minimum wage, creating paid sick leave, and paid family medical leave. As the nation’s oldest civil rights organization, the NAACP stands on the front line protecting and defending the civil rights
of our communities. Our volunteers, who include a growing youth membership, are actively engaged in working with community leaders to call on local, state, and national elected officials to change laws,
implement reform and hold legislators and law enforcement agencies accountable for civil rights violations.

It has been more than 50 years since the civil rights movement desegregated schools, lunch counters, and solidified the right to vote, yet we continue to witness the deaths of African American men and women at the hands of police. As a nation, we witnessed a recent surge in hate, fear, and discrimination against Blacks, Latinos, women, and the LGBTQ communities. As such, an uprising of young civil rights activists united into one voice, one message and one goal: Defeat Hate - VOTE!

When you support us, you strengthen our ability to continue our important work and advocate civil rights on behalf of our communities and individuals.

Please support our work by joining us on September 13th to 15th in celebrating Spokane's Centennial.
