NATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF COLORED PEOPLE President MOORFIELD STOREY Chairman Board of Directors MAJOR J. E. SPINGARN Acting Chairman of the Board MARY WHITE OVINGTON Treasurer OSWALD GARRISON VILLARD Secretary JOHN R. SHILLADY Director of Publications and Research DR. W. E. B. DuBOIS Field Secretary JAMES WELDON JOHNSON Assistant Secretary WALTER F. WHITE The N. A. A. C. P. has no endowments. It is supported entirely by voluntary contributions and membership fees. 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 secure a fuller measure of justice for the Twelve Million colored citizens of America. If you believe in a square deal for every man, this is your chance to help. Negroes 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. Date _______, 1918. The Crisis is sent without further charge to members paying two dollars or more. OSWALD GARRISON VILLARD, Treasurer, 70 Fifth Avenue, New York. SIR: I enclose $______ in payment of membership dues for one year in the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, with the stipulation that one dollar of any amount remitted herewith in excess of one dollar is for one year's subscription to THE CRISIS.
