“We want to get younger people involved and want to encourage them on and off the campus,” Williams said.
She added that students would be guided by the Springfield unit of the NAACP and that she would be offering them assistance.
The process to establish a chapter includes setting up a space, establishing leadership positions and following other protocols dictated by the NAACP.
Williams said leadership at Clark State has been extremely supportive of the idea and that she also hopes to establish a chapter at Wittenberg University.
“The most important thing to share with the students is that the NAACP is for everyone,” she added.
