A Disappointment for Anchorage
The NAACP Anchorage Expects More from a Citywide Leader
ANCHORAGE: The NAACP Anchorage has been an established civil rights organization in the community since 1951. Our goal is to provide as much information as possible so that the community in informed and exercises their right to vote.
It is extremely unfortunate that our invitation to mayoral candidate Amy Demboski to share her vision for Anchorage by participating in the NAACP Anchorage’s upcoming debate was declined.
The NAACP has high expectations of our citywide leaders to be responsible and inclusive of our extremely diverse and multi-cultural community.
Our organization inspires action through our many strides in social initiatives, education, and cultural competency. We will continue to empower the community by encouraging participation in the civic and democratic process to ensure that every voice is heard.
The NAACP is a non-partisan, civil rights organization
