Dear Freedom Fighters,

The Georgia NAACP is proud to be host its 74th Annual State Convention at the Holiday Inn Hotel in Athens, Georgia, October 6-8, 2016. The theme is “Our Lives Matter and Our Votes Count”. Download the Convention Call and Registration Information.

You may know Athens Georgia as home to R.E.M., the B-52s, Widespread Panic, Of Montreal and more. We’re the city Rolling Stone named “#1 College Music Scene in America.” You may know it for the University of Georgia and Georgia Bulldogs, the “Classic City of the South” where rich tradition at the heart of a hip college town creates a culture unlike any other.

The Convention Planning Team has listened to you and this Convention will have a new look and a host of new workshops that will engage, motivate, and equip participants with the tools to move our communites forward.

I am excited by the promising opportunities the Convention provides in celebrating the people and the work that sustains this state’s oldest and largest civil rights organization.

Space is limited so book your room at the Holiday Inn today!

Thank you for your continued support of the mission of the NAACP. I look forward to learning and sharing with you in Athens!

Francys Johnson

State President and Diamond Life Member
