WELCOME TO THE EAST VALLEY NAACP - ARIZONA (1008-B)

President's Message

November 2022 - Voting is Power.

The Arizona Legislature and partisan courts have been busy this year! This generation of architects and protectors of the New Jim Crow fabricated new "crimes", increased mandatory minimum sentencing, criminalized filming police, and sent women's rights to control their own bodies back to the Civil War Era.

Elections matter. Who we elect this November to lead the Maricopa County Attorney's Office has never been more important. To help the Community make informed decisions about this important elected position, we sent Julie Gunnigle and Rachel Mitchell a Candidates Voter Education Questionnaire. Read their responses, and then vote like our lives depend on it. Because they do.

Our children matter. Who we elect this November to preside over school governing boards will impact curriculum choices, diversity and inclusion practices, school discipline decisions, and more. Watch our recent School Board Candidates Virtual Town Hall featuring candidates from the Chandler, Mesa, Tempe, Kyrene, and Gilbert school districts.

Voting is Power. #PowerYourVote at naacp.org/vote.
