The Greater Terre Haute NAACP Branch has rescheduled its discussion to make the community aware of how to more effectively impact state and local government. A special NAACP meeting will be on Monday, February 5, 2018, at 6:30 p.m. at the Booker T. Washington Park Community Center.
John E. Lang, Political Action Committee Chairman said, “We appreciate that the speakers are so committed to bringing their time-sensitive messages to our community. We hope citizens will turnout to hear this important discussion.”
Two speakers will explain the structure of state and local government. Bionca Gambill, a former State Representative, will focus on how citizens may become engaged in the process. Perspectives will also be shared by State Senator Lonnie Randolph, a member of the Indiana Black Legislative Caucus.
“There are many different ways for citizens to impact government,” commented A. Theressa Bynum. “One may either be involved in politics or affect politics, but you must understand how government works and be a registered voter,” Bynum added.
