The Political Education Committee (PEC) ensures there is equality for all minority group citizens in all political aspects. This committee seeks to enforce federal, state and local laws securing civil rights and to educate persons about their constitutional rights. Additionally, PEC is responsible for the coordination and execution of the Detroit Branch NAACP’s Get Out to Vote efforts.
As the election cycle continues, this is an important year and the Political Education Committee will be diligent in ensuring that people are not only registered to vote, but also well-educated on the issues and the process. Additionally, PEC will further increase its attention on the mobilization aspect to increase voter turnout. Overall, PEC wants to protect the right to vote so access to the ballot box remains unhindered.
The Political Education committee meets on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month at 6:00pm. Please consider joining us!
