Chapter Accomplishments (2014 version)

BCC NAACP accomplishmentsThis is what the BCC NAACP has accomplished in our first two years!

BCC NAACP Chapter accomplishments Aug 2012-October 2013. Thanks, everyone!

BCC NAACP Accomplishments FlierThe BCC NAACP chapter has only been established for one year since August of 2012, but in that year we have accomplished so much! We’ve become the largest college chapter in New Jersey with over 70 members. Our president and founder, Ivan Wei, travelled to the national convention in Florida last June to represent us and while he was there, Ivan was elected NAACP Region II Youth and College Chair – Congratulations Prez!

Our chapter partnered with a bunch of different clubs to create the first ever BCC NAACP Voter Education Forum, which drew a crowd of about 250 students, faculty and administrators to hear keynote Barbara Buono, and engage with our excellent panel. We hope to make this an annual event. And, we have registered over 500 voters this past year.

We brought a Half the Sky documentary screening to Bergen, along with a speaker from Half the Sky Foundation who spearheaded a discussion about the important global women’s rights issues raised in the film. The Women’s Club donated food and beverages, and co-hosted this event along with several other clubs.

Last week, we once again rounded up a group of NAACPers, Kokokidz and Madres por Obama, and headed to FP Youth Outcry‘s annual Break Bread With You Thanksgiving celebration, where we donated food, clothing; served food to and shared meals with, Newark’s homeless for the second year.

Thanks go out to Dr. Milon (our chapter advisor), BCC faculty and staff, our partner clubs, members, event participants, NAACP state officials and Bergen County (Adult) Chapter members who have trained and mentored us and our generous donors, for enthusiastically supporting us in our first three semesters. We look forward to many more years of Social Justice at BCC and hope that you continue to support our chapter and aid our initiatives!
