The California Hawaii State Conference NAACP is committed to equality and justice for all. Your oldest and most effective civil rights organization in the country will continue the fight for freedom until all people have realized the equal hand of justice.
As we embark on a new generation of leaders picking up the fight for civil rights, I am proud to be the one leading the California Hawaii State Conference of the NAACP. Now more than ever we have to be vigilant, and make sure we are at the forefront of the movement to build political power and fight for the wellbeing of Black Community. We find ourselves directly in the middle of yet another civil rights movement, and now is not the time to rest.
I hope that you join all of us in the fight!

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.
