Rev. Dr. Vernon P. Howard, Jr.
Over the past 5 years,
Dr. Howard has led our civil rights organization to higher levels of justice work and his commitment to advance the Greater Kansas City Community has often come at the sacrifice of his personal and professional goals in furtherance of civil rights.
This recognition is truly an honor and we celebrate with NAACP at their 52nd Annual Freedom Fund Banquet!

SCLC-GKC President's Prophetic Voice, Activism, and Organizing!
We congratulate our president for leading the mobilization efforts in our March and Rally for Peace and Justice in April. We congratulate Dr. Howard for being selected among 51 "Missouri Influencers" by the KC Star newspaper.
Dr. Howard will be helping frame and shape the public conversation around various issues, including economic justice, in articles and commentary in that publication starting now and leading up to the November election. Look for Dr. Howard's prophetic voice in the Star's "Missouri Influencer" series.
