The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People announced Thursday that it has no plans to move. Roger Vann, Chief Operating Officer and Chief of Staff for the civil rights organization, said the "timing was not right."
In 2006, D.C.'s city council approved a $3.5 million grant to help the NAACP move. But in 2007, the organization said it was postponing the move while it worked out details of selling its building in northwest Baltimore.
Vann said they weren't able to pass the move through internal processes in time to take advantage of a "very good offer."
