FAIRFAX CO. – The Fairfax County NAACP is celebrating its 100th anniversary.

In a Black History Month celebration, the Fairfax County NAACP is being honored Saturday for serving the community for 100 years.

The Virginia State NAACP President, Kevin Chandler, is a special guest speaker of the event.

In 2018, the Fairfax County NAACP says they are focusing on criminal justice reform by advocating to diversify the police department, work to identify systematic discrimination in public schools, identify the root causes of use of force against African-Americans, and more.

“Thank you @FairfaxNAACP for your continued service, inspiration, and determination to improve our community,” the Fairfax County Police Department tweeted Saturday.
