People’s Organization for Progress (POP) Chairman Mr. Lawrence Hamm has been a relentless advocate for African-American people and the cause of human rights for more than 40 years. The struggle for quality education, employment opportunities, access to health care and against racial profiling, and police brutality continues through the efforts of its Chairman and the activism of the organization's members.

President Timberlake is the youngest Freeholder elected in the state of New Jersey and the only current sitting African-American female president. Her commitment to public service helps positively transform the lives of people in and outside of Essex County.
