MESSAGE FROM PRESIDENT


As we begin to venture down a new road of bringing Negro Election Day to a Status of a State Holiday we are prepared for the challenges and the push back which we will encounter.  But it is something Salem United is looking forward to undertake.
We also want to thank so many people for the support we received in 2022. 
We are opening our organization to those who want to be a part of Salem United.  The love and congratulations humbled me.  
I wish I had the time to have spent more time with you and throughout the rest of the year I will make it a point to see you and thank you all in person.
You are all important to me and I appreciate your coming out and supporting Salem United, Inc. in the way you did.  
Join us in 2023 for the best Negro Election Day ever.  

 

President and Founder
Doreen Wade

WHO WE ARE

To Learn Who We Are And What We Do.  It Starts With Us Working Together As One. 
Wanting To Make A Contribution Of Support!


 

About Us!
When Salem United, Inc. says our missions is to preserve, protect and build black history and build community engagement we use the term “Black” to show unity amongst those that identify with their African roots. 

The African Diaspora of worldwide collection of communities and nations, made up of Brazil, United States, Haiti, Dominican Republic and Colombia.  

A new nation and culture of African descents emerged from tragedy and Negro Election Day is one of those cultures.  So, I work to unify us in the African Diaspora through unity, pride and cultural truth.
 

Who We Are!

Salem United, Inc. is a 501c3 charitable organization established June 2020. Our history was enacted into Law through Bill S.2703 as a Massachusetts State Holiday and we come together to celebrate the voting work of enslaved men from 1740:
