We're on a mission (cont.)

To make our vision a reality, we will:

  • Ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of all citizens

  • Achieve equality of rights and eliminate race prejudice among the citizens of the United States

  • Remove all barriers of racial discrimination through democratic processes

  • Seek enactment and enforcement of federal, state, and local laws securing civil rights

  • Inform the public of the adverse effects of racial discrimination and to seek its elimination

  • Educate everyone on their constitutional rights and take all lawful action to secure the exercise of those rights, and to take any other lawful action in furtherance of these objectives, consistent with the NAACP's Articles of Incorporation and the NAACP Constitution

We're tackling the issues that impact Black America

Structural discrimination and unjust policing, prosecution, and incarceration practices unfairly impact Black communities. Building a just system urgently demands reform.

Economic equity is crucial to racial equity. An inclusive economy means everyone can contribute and earn with fair access to resources and opportunity.

The path to justice requires that we challenge federal, state, and local laws, statutes, and policies to ensure equal protection.

Black health matters, and our work on behalf of families has never been more urgent.

Environmental injustice, including the proliferation of climate change, systematically impacts communities of color and low-income communities in the U.S. and around the world.

We support our young emerging leaders and their transition into becoming strong agents for social change within and beyond NAACP.

We advocate for equitable local, state, and federal policies that establish education standards, allocate resources, and set priorities for education and workforce systems.
