The Albemarle-Charlottesville NAACP Branch is committed to informing our community about important issues and ensuring that public participation is accessible to all. To that end, we have prepared this 2021 General Election Voter Guide (PDF download) to inform local voters of the choices available to them in this year’s general election, and encourage you to use this information to get informed and get involved.
The impacts of this pandemic have been compounded for the Black community, but
we must not let this moment exclude us from the Census. Now more than ever,
your participation in the Census will help determine the level of federal
funding our communities receive for the amenities that are so vital to our
well-being; such as good roads, schools, libraries, public parks and more.
In these difficult times, one of the most important things you can do is
to Be Counted! You can complete the census online, by mail or by phone.
Kwanzaa is the time of year when African Americans come together as a community to celebrate our culture and reaffirm our African heritage. It is done by reflecting, reassessing, rewarding and rejoicing in an atmosphere of peace, respect and unity. Please come and bring people with you. If possible, wear African attire.
