This is the Drew County NAACP Branch 6042. I am President Clarissa Pace. It is my pleasure to lead this prestigious organization in this community. Collectively, the branch officers, executive committee, and members are working to build an equitable community. We believe that everyone should be treated with the same fairness and justice and be empowered to participate in all social, cultural and economic parts of life.
Everything we initiate and successfully accomplish is to result in a more THRIVING community of minority individuals, families and business owners.
Join us as we work to make this happen through equality and justice for all!
-President Clarissa Pace
Our mission is to achieve equity, political rights, and social inclusion by advancing policies and practices that expand human and civil rights, eliminate discrimination, and accelerate the well-being, education, and economic security of Black people and all persons of color.
