National NAACP will kick off its seven city listening tour, NAACP Forward, in Detroit on Thursday, August 24 at 6 pm at Greater New Mt. Moriah located at 586 Owen. NAACP Forward is a part of the organization’s strategic plan for the future, enhancing its mission, vision, and fight for civil rights amidst a swirling climate of political hostility, voter suppression, income inequality, mass incarceration, police brutality and anti-immigrant sentiment. The national listening tour is free and open to the public. Greater New Mt. Moriah is the home church for previous Senior Pastor and NAACP Executive Director Benjamin Hooks.
