TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Gov. Chris Christie and Senate President Steve Sweeney will both address the NAACP’s annual conference in Parsippany on Saturday.

Organizers say the conference is expected to draw up to 400 people and will focus on “reconnecting the family” as well as on justice and equality.

NAACP state conference president Richard Smith applauded Christie and the Legislature for passing legislation that the organization supports, including a bill that requires police to mount cameras on the dashboards of new cars or to provide officers with wearable cameras.

Smith says he hopes Christie’s appearance will help open lines of communication between the organization and the Republican governor.

Smith adds it is Christie’s first time as governor addressing the conference.
