JUSTICE FOR MICHAEL BROWN: WHAT YOU CAN DO!
The NAACP mourns the shocking loss of Michael Brown. Our hearts are with his family, and all who were touched by his death.

We need answers on his shooting – answers the Ferguson and St. Louis County Police Departments seem disinterested in providing. But our efforts will continue unabated. We will seek and ultimately find the truth about Michael Brown’s killing.


You can send a note of condolence, share on social media and keep up to dates on all events.

Dr. Edwin L. Morarity and Lillie G. Morarity Scholarship Fund

Each year the NAACP, through generous donations, is able to provide scholarships to outstanding students.
It is the duty of our dedicated Scholarship Committee to determine the most outstanding individuals to receive these awards.
The NAACP does not provide financial aid to individuals, only scholarships through this process.
Our students need our support. Can you help? Thank you in advance for your donation.
