New Member FAQ

What do new members need to know?

Our national organization is the oldest and boldest civil rights organization in the United States. We are an inclusive, welcoming group of folks who center justice in all that we do.

Our Branch was chartered in 1971 and is still very active in the community.

When are meetings?

The monthly membership meetings are the second Thursday of each month at 6:30 pm. Since the COVID-19 pandemic, they are both In Person or by Zoom. The locations and zoom links are announced in the monthly newsletter. To receive the latest information on the meetings, sign up for the newsletter now.

(Please be aware that meetings are recorded. You are not required to have a Zoom account for participation, but it is suggested you download the latest software onto the device you will be using before the meeting is scheduled to begin.)

How accessible is the Branch leadership?

Our Branch leadership team prides itself on being accessible to our community and welcomes all members, Branch friends, and guests to connect with us. Contact emails are listed at the end of each monthly newsletter. Branch Officers and Committee Chairs can also be contacted through their email links on the Branch Leadership page.

What should all members be expected to do?

All members should be expected to find comfort in discomfort. The work of social justice and social change may oftentimes require an individual to be self-reflective and grapple with a host of emotions (joyfulness, disappointment, frustration, fear, etc.). To the end, it is important to recognize that we are all human and have been socialized within a society that awards privileged individuals and marginalizes a number of identities.
