A Welcome From the NAACP San Diego Branch...
Welcome to the NAACP San Diego Branch website. Our
goal is to serve the community and provide you with timely information
regarding the status of civil rights in San Diego, California and the
nation. The NAACP San Diego Branch is committed to equality and justice
for all. We believe that "Equality is the Right of Every Citizen!"
The NAACP, founded in 1909, is the oldest and most effective civil rights organization in the country and will continue the fight for freedom until all people have realized the equal hand of justice. The NAACP San Diego Branch was founded in 1919 with the same goals and commitment.
We trust this site will be informative and of value to all of our citizens. We ask you to join us in this continuing struggle for equality for all by becoming a dues paying member, attending our meetings and joining a committee to make sure the NAACP San Diego Branch remains relevant and strong in our quest for justice. Our branch is only as strong as the membership that supports us.
STATEMENT FROM THE NAACP SAN DIEGO BRANCH
PRESIDENT DR. ANDRÉ J. BRANCH
We are saddened to learn of the shooting death of San Diego Police Officer Jonathan De Guzman, and the wounding of Officer Wade Irwin in the line of duty. We send condolences to the family of Officer De Guzman and pray for their comfort. We pray for comfort and for full recovery of Officer Irwin and we pray for comfort of his family at this very difficult time. We acknowledge the pain and sadness that the men and women of the department, sworn and non-sworn, are likely feeling at this time. We know that this has been a traumatizing event. We continue to mourn for those in our city and country killed because of senseless gun violence. We must continue to work toward reducing the number of illegal guns on our streets and eliminating guns in the hands of those who would do harm to any human being. The NAACP San Diego Branch stands ready to work with Chief Zimmerman and Mayor Faulkner to create real community between residents and the officers who are sworn to protect them and between residents and city officials who serve them.
President André J. Branch accepted an invitation to be
interviewed on KPBS Midday Edition to respond to the deaths
of Alston Sterling, Philando Castile, and five Dallas police
