Support for Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams

The Maricopa County Branch NAACP expresses our strong support for Chief Williams. The Maricopa County
Branch NAACP (MCB-NAACP) believes Chief Williams is extremely qualified to continue to lead the Phoenix
Police Department as evident by her willingness to cooperate and embrace the Department of Justice (DOJ)
Investigation. Further, we understand that Chief Williams inherited some longstanding problems that she has been
diligently working to correct during her administration.
The MCB-NAACP request that Chief Williams receive the support of Mayor Gallego, The City Manager and City
Council to continue her work with the DOJ and lead the Phoenix Police Department.

Happy Father’s Day

Happy Father’s Day to those Fathers who show up for their families and those fathers who would like to show up for their families but are not able to because of a multitude of society constraints.

As we celebrate this historic weekend with the implementation of a federal Juneteenth Holiday; let us rejoice in that celebration and recognize all the fathers and father figures who have helped make this a reality for the country. Let us celebrate the fathers and father figures today because we realize the often-difficult struggle that men of color endure. Let us celebrate all the strong, resilient, and caring fathers and father figures who help fight for everyone’s freedom.
