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, and plays a significant role in establishing legal precedents in order to improve the quality of life of America’s downtrodden.
Our fight for democracy will not stop, especially during unprecedented times like these. To ensure the lives of African Americans and other communities of color remain a priority in the State of California and Hawaii, we need your help. Make a difference that will allow us to continue our work throughout 2022 and beyond. Click here to join the NAACP today.
