NAACP issues first-ever travel advisory for a state — and it’s Missouri

NAACP officials say their recent travel advisory for Missouri is the first that the civil rights group has issued for any state.

But the warning follows a recent trend of similar alerts issued by other groups for vulnerable people around the United States.

The travel advisory, circulated in June by the Missouri NAACP and recently taken up by the national organization, comes after travel alerts began appearing in recent years in light of police shootings in the U.S. and ahead of immigration legislation in Texas and Arizona.

The Missouri travel advisory is the first time an NAACP conference has ever made one state the subject of a warning about discrimination and racist attacks, a spokesman for the national organization said Tuesday.

Mizzou, the University of Missouri flagship campus is in an enrollment tailspin following the riots there. Layoffs, shuttered dorms, etc. as a consequence. Parents don't want to send their kids to lawless locations.
