NAACP President: “We Will Continue To Be Your Servants On The Battlefield
The Seattle King County NAACP formally introduced their new president, Sadiqa Sakin, and new board to the community last Friday at their first public event under their new administration, which took office in January.
The event, which drew a large and diverse crowd – including King County Executive Dow Constantine, State Rep. Debra Entenman, and Federal Way City Councilmember Jessie Johnson — featured NAACP National President Derrick Johnson, and Karen Boykin-Towns, Vice Chair of the NAACP National Board.
Boykin-Towns in her address to the audience talked about how impressed she was with the way this new administration has hit the ground running and what they’ve been able to accomplish in a short period of time.
“There are many [Branch] presidents around this county who do not get the [NAACP national board] vice chair and the [national] president [to attend a local NAACP event], and for this young woman to have us here and she has not been in office three months – she’s a boss,” says Boykin-Towns.
