Resolutions

The NAACP is about changing society for the better.  Sometimes that means taking on a new challenge or changing an old way of doing business.  One way that happens in the NAACP is through resolutions.

Resolutions are official recommendations from NAACP units to the NAACP national organization.  Resolutions are considered at the national convention, which normally takes place in July of each year.  However, to get a resolution considered at the convention, you need to start soon.

Here is the official process (from the NAACP Constitution at sandiegonaacp.org/constitution):

No resolution for change of policy or program of action shall be in order unless it shall have been favorably voted upon at regular legislative meetings of a Unit in good standing, or has been submitted by the President and CEO. The resolutions for policy or program change must be certified by the President and the Secretary of the Unit, and received by the President and CEO in the National Office by May 1st, annually. The Convention shall act on all such proposed program or policy changes during its Legislative Sessions.

That is, our Branch must approve and submit any resolutions we wish to have considered by May 1st, 2021.

If you know of an issue that you think needs to be addressed nationally, or if you think there need to be changes to the constitution or bylaws, start thinking about it now!

Join us to build “Power for the People” at the 2020 Just Energy Summit, online, September 28-October 2, 2020!

Partnership for Southern Equity, Just Energy Circle members, and our regional planning team partners have worked hard to create a dynamic, inclusive event that will build power with communities, organizers, and advocates mobilizing against environmental injustices and fighting to reverse climate change. By lifting up the lived experience of Black people, communities of color, and essential workers marginalized by low wages, we can ensure a just and equitable transition to a clean energy economy that benefits ALL!

We welcome the opportunity to continue to partner with organizations to develop more opportunities for Black economic sustainability and to proactively dismantle the structures that have held many people of color back.
