Like all Americans, but especially as an American Muslim who benefits from the rights that came as a result of the long struggle for justice and equality by the African American community, and namely under the leadership of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), I congratulate our nation for having such an organization.
To all the NAACP workers, staff, volunteers, and board members, present and past, happy 100th anniversary. It has been 100 years of hard work, dedication, and success.
Please keep up the good work. America counts on you.
