NAACP and the Fight for Equality – Now More Than Ever: A Conversation with Regina Mason, NAACP President Monterey

  • Hilton Garden Inn, Monterey 1000 Aguajito Road Monterey, CA, 93940 United States

Founded in 1909, the NAACP has worked for an end to racial discrimination.  Both nationally and locally, the organization has a long history of successful legal battles and advocacy.  The Monterey branch has been a leading force against racism in our county since 1932. The recent surge in hate speech in the wake of last year’s angry and divisive presidential campaign bring a renewed urgency to the work of the organization.  Now, more than ever, the NAACP is a leading voice against racism in our community.

At our May 18 luncheon, Regina Mason, President of NAACP Monterey County Branch, will explore past successes, current perspectives and future challenges.  Her 25 years of work with the organization, particularly with the NAACP Youth Council, provide her with powerful insight into the new generation of civil rights leaders.  Our Q&A period will be moderated by JT Mason, steering committee member of Whites for Racial Justice.
