      Columbus, OH

September 2013


From Jodi Howell: A reliable source informed me that the NAACP Columbus, OH Chapter President Noel Williams has been SUSPENDED & her NAACP membership REVOKED!!! This information has not yet been confirmed by NAACP National Headquarters due to their policy.. If a person in leadership engage in ABUSE Of POWER their rights to confidentiality should be thrown out! Victims have RIGHTS too... NAACP Statement: The NAACP's National Director of Unit Administration stated to me "Per our conversation the National Office is reviewing the matter pursuant to our policy, however in that this is an internal administrative process, neither the review nor its outcome is published information."

The Columbus NAACP President Noel Williams, irate and enraged held me against my will at the NAACP office, verbally assaulted, intimidated, displayed aggression, and attempted to have me evicted from my residence of 7 yrs. President Williams contacted the VP of my rental property with threats of filing a NAACP complaint for not having minority workers, & threatened to sue me for services not provided. There have been continual concerns & complaints to the National NAACP Headquarters regarding President Williams during her 5 years in office. Please sign & share my PETITION with your network to have the Columbus NAACP office investigated and President Williams disciplined. Thank you for your support!

      I went to NAACP for support & advocacy for a pending case. Excited about making a difference, I joined as a member and started volunteering. I would have never imagine experiencing something like this from the oldest civil rights organization NAACP in a million years. Please sign this petition to hold President Williams & The Columbus NAACP chapter accountable for misconduct. You can help to prevent this from happening to someone else. Thank you for your support!
