It appeals to all fair-minded citizens, white and colored, to join in the effort to secure simple justice under the law for colored citizens. Heretofore the Association has not had money enough adequately to carry on the fight. Join now and help The Moorfield Storey Drive for 50,000 MEMBERS Negros in many states are disfranchised, discriminated against, "Jim-Crowed," lynched, denied equal protection of the laws, equal educational advantages for their children, and equal economic opportunity. National honor demands justice for all citizens. If every reader of The Crisis will become a member, the Association's work can be made more effective. DO IT NOW. [[line]] Date [[blank line]], 1918.
