NAACP state convention returns to Bowling Green

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – The NAACP’s state convention took place from Sept. 16 to Sept. 18 right in Bowling Green at WKU.

This was the first time in a very long time that the NAACP’s state convention was hosted in Bowling Green. People from branches all over Kentucky came to Western to discuss education, environmental issues, political action, and more.

News 40 spoke to Bowling Green and Warren County Branch President, Ryan Dearbone, who told us that the mission of the NAACP is to obtain equality and fairness for everyone, not just one group.

Dearbone mentioned that during the weekend, the youth and college age branches would have their own sessions, tailored to their demographic to discuss how they can best contribute to the overall purpose of the organization.
