CWA District 6 Vice President Claude Cummings, Jr., was elected to join the NAACP’s National Board of Directors as an at-large member. The election took place during the NAACP’s Founders Day event, celebrating the organization’s 113th anniversary. Cummings has a long history as a leader in the NAACP and in the larger movement for racial equity. So far, he has served as the First Vice President of the NAACP Houston Chapter, Second Vice President Texas State NAACP Conference, and as a member of the Labor Committee for the National NAACP. He hopes to use his new position to continue to strengthen the bridge between the struggle for labor rights and civil rights.
