New England Area Conference (NEAC)
Unity Walk for Justice,
*Saturday, Sept. 19, 2015*
If for any reason the "America's Journey for Justice" walk is beyond the reach of you or your Branch members you will want to know about the New England Area Conference (NEAC) Unity Walk for Justice, *Saturday Sept 19, 2015*.
This 3 mile walk will be organized by your own Branch members to take place in your own community in conjunction/cooperation with other social justice/civil rights groups you identify in your community. It is NEAC's plan to synchronize this walk so that all NEAC Branches will be begin at the same time, 10:00am, on Sat. Sept. 19, 2015. If you live outside of the EDT zone you can coordinate your Branch's walk to sync with the East Coast or schedule to begin at 10:00am your local time (that might look like the "Wave" as seen in crowds☺).
Contact your local area NAACP Branch if you'd like to help move a walk like this forward in your community.
For those living in the New England states stay tuned for more information over the next few days and weeks ahead about the NEAC Unity Walk for Justice.
