The Health of Any Nation is measured by three (3) things.
The number one (1) issue at this time is the lack of access to information.
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. West Chester, PA branch #2292.

Protect access and enhance voting rights & fair representation in our government, at all levels of the political process.
Environmental injustice, including the proliferation of climate change, systematically impacts communities of color & low-income communities
in the U.S. and around the world.
Every child deserves access to a quality education, in a safe environment. that promotes hope, nurtures creativity, provides opportunities not obstacles.
Our criminal justice system is shaped by biased policing and unfair judicial precedents, rooted in anti-Blackness and racial disparity.
Across our nation there's an unprecedented wave of assaults on our electoral institutions. Recently a minority of senators used the archaic filibuster to block legislation aimed at protecting voting rights and the Supreme Court made a decision that will directly enable voter suppression. Eight years ago, the Court gutted the heart of the Voting Rights Act in Shelby County vs. Holder. We continue to fight with everything we have to restore the Voting Rights Act.
Established in 1919, we continue to serve our community with unwavering focus and resolve. Our website connects & directs you to information & resources aimed to address the inequalities, that are the focus of the NAACP's work. Please click on the pictures and action buttons for more information.
