Mississippi Tornado Relief Effort

Stand with Mississippi

On March 24 and 25, devastating tornadoes hit the Mississippi Delta, claiming the lives of more than 20 residents. Sunday, March 26, 2023, President Biden issued a State of Emergency in Mississippi following this catastrophic event, and the NAACP is committed to standing with the residents during this difficult time.

Our leadership team is working to provide assistance to those affected by this disaster and is in communication with the Red Cross, Representative Bennie G. Thompson (D-MS), and local unit leaders to coordinate relief efforts and support the affected families.
