LYNDHURST, N.J. (AP) - Fliers urging residents to join the Ku Klux Klan are turning up on doorsteps and driveways in a northern New Jersey town.

The leaflets call on Lyndhurst residents to “Join the Klan and Save Our Land.” They include a website and phone number for the Pelham, North Carolina-based Loyal White Knights of the KKK.

North Carolina Loyal White Knights grand dragon Robert Jones tells The Record (https://bit.ly/1M7iGlT ) newspaper his group has members in Lyndhurst who recently held a meeting and decided to distribute materials in the township.

Jones says they are trying to recruit new members.

Bergen County NAACP president Anthony Cureton condemned the group’s efforts.
