NAACP National Convention Expected to Draw Thousands to Alamo City this July

Written by on June 26, 2018

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, NAACP, is holding their 109th Annual Convention in San Antonio, Texas at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, 900 E. Market St., from July 14 – 18, 2018.  The theme for this year’s convention should come as a surprise to no one: Defeat Hate – VOTE.

“This is historic for San Antonio, it is the first time the Convention comes here and we are excited because we are celebrating our 100th year, chartered in 1918, and it also the year of our city’s Tricentennial,” explains Oliver Hill, President of the NAACP San Antonio Branch.

The Convention kicks off with a plethora of youth talent referred to as ACT-SO, acronym for Afro Cultural Technology Scientific Olympics where you will find high schoolers showcasing their STEM achievements with competitions in various categories.

A Public Mass Meeting, which is free and open to all, will feature an address from NAACP Chairman of the Board Leon Russell on Sunday, July 15th starting at 6:00p.m.

An expected three to four thousand delegates typically attend the Convention.  Once family members and additional participants and presenters are factored in, this Conventional will draw up to 10,000 people to the Alamo City.

“We are still in this fight for freedom and justice,” said Hill, “I hope people will register and come (to the Convention), there is always a lot of good and beneficial information.”

The NAACP was founded in 1909, it is the nation’s oldest, largest and most prominent civil rights organization with more than half a million members and supporters across the United States and world who advocate for their communities.  Their mission is to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality and rights of all persons and to eliminate race-based discrimination.

    The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if
    it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube
    sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and
    she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it
    with someone!

    I to find this topic to be actually something that
    I believe I’d by no means understand. It kind of feels too complicated and
    very vast for me. I am having a look ahead on your next
    submit, I will attempt to get the hold of it!

    Greetings! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was
    wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?
    I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and
    I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a
    good platform.
