PURPOSE For more than 100 years the oldest Civil Rights organization, NAACP, in America constantly echoes the rights of every individual to equal justice under the law. Beyond the premise of race, ethnicity and political labels ALL mankind are the same. Thus, as stated in the Constitution – Americans endowed with certain inalienable rights…guaranteed equal justice under the law. With this assurance, TLOD strides to make an impact on the lives of all Americans to dream and enjoy the pursuit of life in its fullest. As President Benjamin Jealous remarked: That is an important truth worth remembering and celebrating in todays divisive, contentious times. Americas promise of equal justice, rights and opportunity for all defines and distinguishes our nation. And how well we fulfill that promise speaks volumes about our national character.
PURPOSE Each TLOD chapter contributes the nationally mandated $50.00 as part of the April 1 st financial report. Implement at least one NAACP activity annually. Each Area should host a professional display table to highlight local chapter activities on an Area level and at Syn-Lod 2013. Continue to encourage TLOD chapter life memberships with NAACP by Syn-Lod 2013. The membership fee is $750; and, may be paid in increments of $75.00 per year until paid in full. Your chapter will have NAACP Chapter Membership status while you are paying. Increase number of Teens participating in NAACP ACT-SO Scholarship Competition by taking more of an active role in NAACP national programs.
