Welcome to the Riverside NAACP


I am truly excited and ready to serve as the new president for the Riverside NAACP Branch. Blessed with having served over 25 years in school administration, it has equipped me with effective training in working with teams to develop and meet missions and goals. It is now time to share this blessing with our community and it is an honor to do so. Serving as Vice President under our beloved past president, the late Woodie Rucker Hughes, for the past ten years has provided lots of opportunity to collaborate with community/government partners and receive extensive hours of training on game changing strategies to promote the advancement of civil rights work and to build advocacy capacity in local communities. I am humbled for the opportunity to lead the Riverside Branch of the oldest  civil rights organization in the country —the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) — with the mission to secure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights in order to eliminate race-based discrimination and ensure the health and well-being of all persons. 

As your branch President, our Executive Committee along with myself is committed to continue the steadfast work to meet this mission in Riverside County.  We invite you to join our team by becoming a member! 

Please join our next General Membership meeting, which meets every third Monday in the Stratton Center located at Bordwell Park in Riverside California at 6 p.m. 

Ready to Serve, 

Dr. Regina Patton Stell
President, Riverside Branch NAACP
