About Us

NAACP


 

The mission of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) is to secure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights in order to eliminate race-based discrimination and ensure the health and well-being of all persons.


Founded in 1909, the NAACP is the nation’s oldest and largest civil rights organization.
From the ballot box to the classroom, thousands of dedicated members who make up the NAACP continue to fight for social justice for all Americans.
