NEWTON — The Catawba County Branch NAACP will hold its monthly meeting on Sunday, April 11, at 4 p.m. A special program will be led by attorney Hampton Dellinger.
Dellinger, former NC Deputy Attorney General who was recognized as a 2020 “Leader in the Law,” has an active pro bono practice where he works to remove Confederate monuments and protect the rights of voters.
“With the work we’re doing in Catawba County to press county leadership to remove the Confederate monument and with the voter suppression efforts in our state and across the nation, it’s important to understand the issues and next steps,” said Jerry L. McCombs, branch president. “This is an important meeting; I look forward to hearing from Mr. Dellinger.”
This meeting will be held via conference call. To participate, call McCombs at 828-310-6918 by Saturday.
