From developing the duties and responsibilities of the review committee and its members to reviewing the applications of the proposed review committee candidates, NAACP Troy Branch has agreed to support this effort. It has never been more important to help put systems in place that work to serve the needs of Troy’s residents. I feel that we are moving in the right direction to provide that protection to all members of the community.”
