Share the Plate May 2023 – Greater Newark Youth Council NAACP

Every Sunday, half of UUFN's non-pledge collection goes toward supporting local non-profit organizations that are doing good for others, protecting our environment, and addressing humanitarian issues.

May's Share The Plate partner organization is the Greater Newark Youth Council NAACP.

The next generation of civil rights leaders is making waves now and are actively involved in the fight for social justice. Membership in the Greater Newark Youth Council (GNYC) of the NAACP spans several elementary, middle, and high schools in our area. Several school BSUs (Black Student Unions) join and work in tandem with the GNYC on leadership and organizing for civil rights. This group has developed many powerful, intelligent, young people who are destined to change the world.
