Boston NAACP Opens New Office in Roxbury Mall Sat. 5/19
I’m reminded of the African proverb, “Rivers are filled one drop at a time.” This Saturday, the Boston NAACP will open a new office in the Mall of Roxbury, located at 330 Martin Luther King Blvd. As you know, effective advocacy and community engagement requires a strong infrastructure and team to lead change. Over the past year, the Boston NAACP has been recruiting and training the next generation of activists, celebrating 100 years of existence, rebuilding our voice and attempting to find a home that will accommodate our ambitious vision for this branch of the Association. The long awaited opening of our new office is a significant “drop” toward realizing our goals.
We humbly ask that you join us on Saturday. In the spirit of all those NAACP’ers of the past who worked in church basements, private homes and eventually out of that historic office on Mass Avenue, we ask for your attendance and support.
Attached, please find the press release for the opening. A private reception will take place from 11:00 to 12:00 p.m. for Boston NAACP members and electeds, followed by a public ceremony and ribbon cutting at noon.
PLEASE JOIN US (after the Malcolm X Breakfast)…and for business owners, we’ll have a FREE raffle for NAACP members throughout the program and would appreciate any contributions to the raffle. Please see Latisha upon arrival.
Every drop helps!
