President Bill Clinton, Founder of the Clinton Foundation and 42nd President of the United States, will address the 106th NAACP Annual Convention in Philadelphia, PA on Wednesday, July 15, 2015 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.

“We are thrilled President Bill Clinton will be addressing our final plenary session at this year’s NAACP National Convention,” stated NAACP Chairman Roslyn M. Brock. “President Clinton demonstrated his pragmatic leadership while in the White House. Today, he continues his work as a change-making leader through the Clinton Foundation.  As the country is faced with challenges, we look forward to hearing the former President lend his perspective on some of the most important civil rights challenges of our time during the 106th Annual Convention.”

President Clinton has addressed the NAACP’s National Convention on multiple occasions.

“President Clinton comes to the NAACP’s 106th annual convention as not merely a humanitarian or a former president but as a friend,” states Cornell William Brooks, NAACP President & CEO.  “Whether advancing civil rights nationally or combating human rights challenges globally, President Clinton has demonstrated the values of the NAACP over an arc of public service that is both long and wide.”

This year’s convention will run from July 11 – July 15 under the theme “Pursuing Liberty in the Face of Injustice.”  The NAACP will focus on building a broad based agenda around voting rights, criminal justice reform, health equity, economic opportunity and education equality ahead of the 2016 presidential election.  Click here to see the schedule of events; click here to register for press credentials.
