Looking Back, Moving Forward

President's Remarks

From Jeanette EllisRoyston

 
 

Thank you to NAACP Pomona Valley Branch members for re-electing me as their President for a 3rd term. I'm inspired to pledge to do my best for the ten communities we serve. This brings me to mention our branch motto: Together We Are Stronger.

According to NAACP National Headquarters in Baltimore, Maryland, Pomona Valley Branch will serve ten cities: Claremont, Montclair, Ontario, Chino, Laverne, Chino Hills, Upland, Pomona, San Dimas, and Diamond Bar. Members who live or work in these cities are what tie us together and the desire lift each other up intentionally in 2019.

Fortunately we share the same circles strengthening new pathways and allies for a better tomorrow. My goal in 2019 I want to improve and capitalize on what we have achieved together.

In 2018 NAACP PVB members have strategically demonstrated NAACP Mission throughout the Pomona Valley for social justice and equity for all Human Beings, regardless of our Skin Color, Economic, Religion, Education, or Sexuality We Are Stronger Together. In 2019 we're moving Forward Not One Step Back!

Branch Sustainability to Maintain & Increase our membership in 2019: Members must "new" his or her membership annually, renewing your membership there is a financial assessment local branch is required to send to National to utilize and operated in the name of National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. Aka NAACP. Pomona Valley Branch, has faithfully annually have sent its financial assessment to National, we are utilizing NAACP name and operating according to the mission of NAACP, and for that reason who is reading this and have not renewed your membership through your local branch.
