“I have worked with most of the incoming group and I know they are dedicated and committed to the work of the NAACP. I am proud to have served four terms as president of our local branch and will continue to work to reduce racial disparities and discrimination in our community,” Feemster said.
Feemster will still work for the NAACP in a reduced role as part of the branch’s executive committee and will remain the Nevada State Director for the NAACP National Voter Fund. Blanck, who will serve two terms, was sworn in on Jan. 4 along with other leaders.
