NAACP “Power, Justice, Freedom” voter registration rally planned

On Friday, September 26, hundreds of Tennessee NAACP unit presidents and members, along with the community will hold a “Register to Vote for Power, Justice & Freedom Rally” Friday, September 26, at 2:00 p.m. on the Austin Peay University Campus at  Pettus Park, across from the APSU Dunn Center.

Tennessee NAACP members will be in Clarksville for their 62nd Annual State Conference, to be held at the Riverview Inn Hotel at 501 College Street in Clarksville. The NAACP is one of the leading organizations in this country and continues to fight for the rights of people in this country.

With only one week to go before the voter registration deadline on October 6, the NAACP wants to mobilize its members and the community to register, new voters before the deadline, and begin their “Get Out The Vote” Campaign.

Early voting in Tennessee will start on October 15. Tennessee still has over 100,000 un-registered voters in the state.

“People need to realize that voting in this election will affect our lives and our communities for years to come. Everything in this Country is broken, our economy, our health care system, and the rights of workers.  It is time you stand up and make your voice heard by voting.”  ~~ Marilyn Brown, Chair of the State Labor and Industry Committee

Speakers include, Mrs. Gloria J. Sweet-Love, President of the Tennessee State Conference, Mr. Fred Hammond, International Vice President of Human Affairs for the United Steel Workers, Keith Caldwell, Director of the Urban EpiCenter and Stephen Fotopoulos, Director Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition and local advocates and community leaders.

Please call the Tennessee NAACP State Office at (731) 660-5580 or email for further information.
