  • Title: We encourage your participation! « NAACP Champaign County
    Descriptive info: We encourage your participation!.. ___________________________________________________________________________________.. My name is Courage Kimber, and I ve been a member of the NAACP for 32 days.. Before August 24, 2013, I had no real intention of becoming a member.. I certainly supported the fight for civil rights, but always asked myself, Why do they need me?.. When I stood among the massive crowd at the anniversary March on Washington, listening to the speeches and feeling the energy of the crowd, I understood.. I began to think about what it must have felt like 50 years ago, and the magnitude of the first march.. It was about people working together to stand up for what is right.. Today, it s important for all of us to do our part.. Let s do this together.. Join me as a new member of the NAACP — or renew your membership — so we can work to fight for civil and human rights.. I m a first-generation American.. My parents are from Liberia.. So I was excited to participate in the anniversary march to commemorate the civil rights movement, which opened the doors of opportunity for my family and other immigrant families.. I marched to pay homage to the people that came before me, those who sacrificed their  ...   of the anniversary march, I saw so many people come together in the spirit of change.. They inspired me.. I became a member because the price to join the NAACP is far less than the price many others paid in the struggle for civil rights.. Becoming a member is my way of making sure that the NAACP can build on the progress that has been made and continue the fight for civil rights.. I may not march everyday, but as a member, I know that I am making an impact.. Your membership will have an impact too.. I hope you ll take a moment to help the movement forward by joining or renewing today:.. http://action.. naacp.. org/they-need-you.. Thank you,.. Courage Kimber.. NAACP Member.. S..

Monday, July 15th, 2013.. We are outraged and heartbroken over today s verdict in the murder trial of George Zimmerman.. We stand with  ...   rule of law.. The NAACP s overriding concern in this case has been securing the arrest of George Zimmerman and a thorough investigation and trial.. Trayvon was the victim of two practices that disproportionately affect black men and boys.. First, he was profiled as suspicious and singled out by Zimmerman as a potential threat.. Second the circumstances of his untimely death were neglected by the police after he died.. A trial and conviction were not always assured.. George Zimmerman was only arrested and charged because of public support for Trayvon Martin and his grieving family.. CASE BACKGROUND.. On the evening of February 26, Trayvon Martin—an unarmed 17-year-old African American student—was confronted, shot, and killed near his Sanford, FL home by George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch captain.. immerman was not originally charged with a crime, because police claimed they could not prove he didn t act in self-defense.. Sanford PD s officers have suffered a series of public missteps in recent years.. In 2006, two private security guards—the son of a Sanford police officer, and a volunteer for the department—killed a black teen, Travares McGill, with a gunshot in his back.. Even though they admitted to never identifying themselves, the guards were released without charges.. In 2010, Justin Collison, the son of a Sanford PD lieutenant, sucker-punched a homeless black man outside a bar, but officers on the scene released Collison without charges.. After video evidence surfaced, the police chief was forced to retire..
