Message from the President
Dr. Harold Baily, Ph, D.
Dear members and supporters,
I want to take this opportunity to thank you for allowing me to serve the NAACP, Albuquerque Branch. I will again represent the branch with dignity and respect and will follow the direction of the executive board for the best interest of the organization and the community at large.
I embrace the challenge to preserve and protect the civil rights of all people. The Albuquerque Branch, founded in 1915, is one of the oldest chapters of the NAACP.
I will work with other groups to form partnerships and coalitions to address similar problems. I strongly believe there must be a collective strategy to address common adverse situations.
In addition, this administration is committed to enhancing the rich history of the Albuquerque Branch and working with unity and purpose.
Harold Bailey, Ph.D.
President, NAACP Albuquerque Branch
