Robin Campbell

I am a native of Chapel Hill, North Carolina and have been involved with the NAACP for over ten years. I received my Bachelors in Political Science and received my Masters in Public Administration. Now currently pursuing my doctorate degree in Public Policy. I am currently working as a fraud investigator. I got my introduction into political and environmental justice with my father, Minister Robert L Campbell as a young child and witnessed the struggle for equality in sustainable marginalized low income communities seeking justice. I am also a member at large of the Carolina Black Caucus. I am excited and look forward to continuing the work of one step forward, not one step back.

The membership committee seeks to retain and engage current members by connecting members to branch committees, populating branch events calendar, and hosting branch events.


The membership committee seeks to increase new and subscribing life memberships, through community engagement, social media outreach, and marketing.


The membership committee seeks to increase branch visibility within the Chapel Hill and Carrboro communities through tabling, volunteering, and participation in local events.

Membership committee is always looking for ways to engage with the community and to get the word out about our branch. Share community events that we should attend, have a table at, or add to our branch events calendar.
