  • Fueling local volunteers who drive culture and change in communities across the country
  • Amplifying the voice of Black America to make sure solutions to our most pressing issues are equitable
  • Working with activists and organizers in local NAACP branches
  • Organizing marches, rallies, and direct action campaigns to bring attention to local issues
  • Supporting access to quality education, healthcare, economic opportunities
  • Participating in voter registration and get-out-the-vote campaigns

The Work of the NAACP is critical to improving our communities. I joined because, just as much as our community needs the NAACP, the association needs each of us to step up and share our time and talents to further the progress of civil rights and social justice.
