Letter to the editor: Sign up for local NAACP chapter

A walk through town reveals many signs, like our own, proclaiming that Black Lives Matter. Folks may be searching for other ways to promote racial equality, and to learn about and work to end systemic racism, other than posting signs. One option among many is to join the Rutland Area NAACP. 
Now the largest New England NAACP chapter after Boston, according to its website Rutland Area NAACP is “dedicated to the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminating race-based discrimination in Vermont.” Its vision “is to ensure a society in which all individuals have equal rights without discrimination based on race.” If you agree with such sentiments, and wish to support a local organization working to promote such goals, please join, by going to its website at naacprutland.org. 
Annual dues are just $30, or $15 for youth memberships. Its such a bargain that, while there, you can also donate additional funds to support all its good works.
