Presidents Message

Hello and welcome to the Hillsborough Branch of the NAACP.

I am Yvette Lewis, and I am pleased to serve you as the President. My work as the Political Action Committee chair for seven years has thoroughly prepared me for this new role.  We are living in time that will challenge us all and the NAACP will be here to lead the charge for justice and equality in America.

My short term goals are to first, work for economic development in the African American community, second, address some of the inequities that we face daily in the criminal justice system and the political process, and third, create a scorecard for the police department. Last but not least, fighting for a quality education for our children is always an ongoing priority. 


During my term, I will be an approachable and positive leader who will continue to truly be involved in the community.


As much as I want to accomplish, I know there is more we can do as a team, so please join the NAACP Hillsborough branch; together we can make a difference.

We meet every third Thursday at 7:00PM at the NAACP Hillsborough location; for directions please visit
