The NAACP distributed free face masks outside of the Government Center in Superior on Thursday, April 23.

COVID-19 disproportionately impacts people of color, particularly African American and Native American people. As a result, the NAACP wants to get face masks to members of BIPOC communities, as well as everyone else.

The NAACP will be handing out more masks Wednesday, April 29, at the Super One Plaza in Duluth at 5 p.m.
