NAACP kicks off Empowerment Campaign

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – The NAACP kicked off its Empowerment Campaign before the November election.

In a press conference Thursday morning on the steps of the Statehouse in Indianapolis, the group rolled out its plan to register more than 10,000 new voters before the election.

“It makes a difference so it’s important. You see changes, you see motivations,” said Sadie Harper Scott, the State Political Action Chair with the NAACP. “You see people coming together, and it’s just that our voices need to be there.”

Scott said Thursday’s event was also intended to spread the word for Moral Mondays, a public issues advocacy movement that originated in North Carolina.
