Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton to Deliver Address at  107th NAACP Annual Convention

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will speak to attendees at the 107th Annual NAACP Convention in Cincinnati, Ohio on Monday, July 18 at 11:30 a.m. The convention runs from July 16th – 20th at the Duke Energy Center under the theme, “Our Lives Matter, Our Votes Count.”

Every presidential election year, the NAACP extends invitations to both the Republican and Democratic nominees for president to address the NAACP membership during their annual July convention. Past speakers have included President Barack Obama, Governor Mitt Romney, Senator John McCain, Senator John Kerry, President George W. Bush, Vice President Al Gore and President Bill Clinton.

At the convention, members from the organization’s 2,200 branches and conferences will hold sessions on local activism, debate and adopt new policy for the organization, and welcome new youth and college leaders joining the movement. This year’s convention will also set the stage for a massive voter engagement and registration initiative to ensure that voters are empowered and heard in the November 8 election.
