After more than a decade, we are sunsetting the "game changers" to embrace a bold new vision for our next chapter.
With a focus on innovation and impact, we are launching C-HOPE, our new Centers of Innovation:
Since 1919, we have served our community with unwavering focus and resolve. Our site serves to provide information and connections to activities & resources aimed to address the inequalities, that are the focus of the NAACP's work; and that provide encouragement and support to our members and community.
The Vision and Mission of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is to ensure a society in which all individuals have equal rights without discrimination based on race; to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate racial hatred.
We have a long and honorable tradition of social justice in this country. As a branch of the nation’s foremost, largest, and most widely recognized civil rights organization we embrace the objectives of our parent organization and stand together in our fight for freedom and equality.
The fight for equal rights and equality are far from over and the fight for freedom is not free. Join us in the war against the racial disparities that are still too prevalent in America.

The NAACP is calling for Deliberate and Intentional Criminal Justice Reform that ensures the protection of Black lives. If there was ever a time for us to unite against a common threat to the existence of Black people, it is now. We've waited for far too long for meaningful federal legislation from Congress. Our fight for justice remains unyielding. Many more Black lives have been lost at the hands of police officers.
Atrocities committed against the people of this country by the authorities cannot and should not go unanswered. We demand Congress take swift action by passing legislation on police reform to end the horrors of police brutality and reform a criminal justice system that fails to properly hold law enforcement officials accountable.
In person meetings have resumed.
Meeting locations are provided above.
