Making an impact
Our legacy of fighting for Black futures is strong and the impact of our work is felt in communities across the U.S.
Black communities thrive when we invest in them. We're leading the charge to transform our communities from awarding $150,000+ in Black business grants to defending majority-Black Mason, TN and Jackson, MS from racist policies.
We will continue to advocate for environmental and climate justice, push for united resolutions and continue to strive to close the racial wealth gap once and for all. It is only with your dedicated support that we can continue to invest in us in 2023 and beyond.
In the most consequential election in memory, it was essential for Black people to vote in massive numbers in 2022. And vote we did. NAACP played a crucial role, partnering with the data science firm GSSA to develop new tools and strategies for voter education and turnout in the midst of an ongoing pandemic. We built our program using cutting-edge data science combined with the engine of traditional organizing: the power of person-to-person connection.
NAACP President and CEO: " Democracy cannot exist without the Black vote."
Civil rights organizations pen open letter supporting Justice Earls—the only Black woman on the state's supreme court bench.
NAACP President & CEO: "Natural disasters have a disproportionate and devastating impact on Black communities and it is our duty to ensure that they are not left behind in the aftermath."
Through outreach and training, we engaged Black coal miners, meat packers, and steelworkers with union and labor organizations to discuss the priorities of Black workers and families to ensure a just transition to a renewable energy economy.
