Danita Tolson, 51, president, Baltimore County NAACP, chair, Coppin State University’s undergraduate nursing program
I believe all talk and no action makes no change and brings no justice. Therefore, I joined the NAACP to help enact change for all individuals: minorities, people with economic challenges, people with unequal health care and people who are being treated unjustly.
I also will seek to decrease racial profiling by police and to hold accountable government leaders who appoint officials in leadership roles when they allow racial profiling or do not promote workplace diversity.
I will focus my efforts on equitable education and the racial disparities within Baltimore County’s police department, where the vast majority of officers are Caucasian.
