In two months, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People will be in San Antonio.

The NAACP is holding it's 109th annual convention for the first time here. Topics about education, civil rights and safer streets will be on the agenda.

"Our goal is to come in and make sure that the entire community though, black and brown, non-NAACP members understand that they're welcomed, they're invited," said Michael Turner, National Board Member Chair of Convention Planning Committee.

The convention will be held at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center from July 14-18.
