“It is with great sadness that Monterey County Branch Silver and Gold Life Member, Dr. Gwendlyn Stewart has passed.  Dr. Stewart was in the process of attaining her Dimond Life Membership and became involved in the Poor People’s Campaign working toward voter empowerment and education at the time of her passing.  The NAACP salutes the memory of Dr. Stewart, a warrior for social justice.  We honor her memory and will continue to stand on the shoulders of this great warrior!”
 
Regina Mason, Branch President
