CAHINAACP Legislative Day

California Hawaii State Conference NAACP Annual Legislative Day  at the California State Capitol is virtual this year!

Join us Monday, May 17, 2021 via Zoom

Each year, the California Hawaii NAACP (CA/HI NAACP), sponsors a legislative day to encourage civic participation of our local branches through direct engagement in the legislative process.

This event lasts from 9:30AM to 3PM, where members (including youth) receive training, participate in mock lobbying activities and end their day lobbying actual legislators and their staff about the CA/HI NAACP legislative priorities, in order to improve the lives of African Americans and other people of color.

The CA/HI NAACP is committed to advocating for policy and legislative reforms which increase equal opportunities and against punitive laws that disproportionately affect African Americans and other people of color.

Event is open to CA/HI NAACP Branches and Branch Members.

The NAACP’s principal objective is to ensure the political, educational, social and economic equality of minority citizens of the United States and eliminate race prejudice. The NAACP seeks to remove all barriers of racial discrimination through democratic processes. This mission is accomplished by seeking the enactment and enforcement of federal, state and local laws securing civil rights, and by informing the public of the adverse effects of racial discrimination. From school desegregation, fair housing, employment and voter registration, top health and equal economic opportunity, the NAACP is working successfully with allies of all races, plays a significant role in establishing legal precedents in order to improve the quality of life of America’s downtrodden.

Founded in 1909 in New York City by a group of black and white citizens committed to social justice, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) is the nation’s largest and strongest civil rights organization. NAACP founders include Ida Wells-Barnett, W.E.B. DuBois, Henry Moscowitz, Mary White Ovington, Oswald Garrison Villard and William English Walling. They answered a clarion “Call” to renew the struggle for civil and political liberty in response to the unrelenting lynching of blacks that were occurring with impunity in 1909.

Today the NAACP is a network of more than 2,200 affiliates covering all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Japan and Germany. Headquartered in Baltimore, Maryland, total membership exceeds 500,000. Today the California State NAACP boasts 72 branches and youth units mobilized across the state to help ensure racial justice and equality.
