Important COVID vaccination information
The Delta variant of the COVID-19 virus is moving through Florida like a hurricane. Protect yourself and get vaccinated, unless your physician advises against it given your unique medical history.
THIS IS A HIGHLY-TRANSMISSIBLE VIRUS: GET VACCINATED, WEAR A MASK, AND MAINTAIN SOCIAL DISTANCE,
Wondering where to go to get vaccinated or to get tested? Dial “211” statewide in Florida.
Take these 3 quick actions now:
Renew your 2-year vote-by-mail ballot request online NOW by clicking here or by telephoning the Supervisor of Elections weekdays (except national holidays) during business hours at (305) 499-2444.
If you’re shopping there anyway instead of supporting your local businesses, direct 0.5% of your eligible Amazon.com to support the NAACP Legal Defense & Education Fund Inc by linking your account to Amazon Smile.
Encourage 2 new members to join, and choose a committee to join. We have work to do whether you have 1 hour to volunteer or 10 hours! For motivated new members who will be active in the organization, several current members have offered to “gift” a one-year membership: please go to our CONTACT US page and let us know how you intend to get involved!
If you’d like an invitation to our next virtual meeting, please send us your full name and contact information, below. When signing onto Zoom, we require that you enter your full name, as well.
