Historically, the Black Faith-Based Institutions has been a source of empowerment, anchoring our people in faith while we fight for justice. Since our founding in 1909, the NAACP and the Black Church have had a long history of combating racial hatred, systemic oppression and centuries of psychological trauma in this struggle for racial equality. The threat against Black lives is prevalent now more than ever, and together we can amplify our strength to collectively, empower of our people. Thank you for your support and consideration. The NAACP Washington, DC Branch understands that the struggles of the Black Faith-Based community are synonymous with the experiences across the Black community. We are united in this fight for racial justice.
Rev. J. R. Williams, NAACP Life Member, stated “The Black experience is housed in the Black church.”
