RELIGIOUS AFFAIRS

The NAACP has always had a strong relationship with the religious community — one of its closest allies for nearly a century. The NAACP Stockton Branch Religious Affairs Committee collaborates with Religious Leaders within the community to conduct religious affairs workshops, educate pastors, churches and religious leaders on the history and programs of the NAACP, present moral and ethical interpretations of the civil rights struggle and the church’s relationship to the struggle for all denominations.
