OUR GOALs

  • Spark a county wide paradigm shift

  • End anti-Blackness

  • Liberation and emancipation

  • Hold open-minded conversations within our county

  • Intervene, interrupt and intercept racism

  • Dismantle systemic racism and oppression

  • Emphasize the importance of the youth perspective

  • Education and awareness of social injustices

  • Provide access, resources and support for marginalized community members

YOUTH PERSPECTIVE

The next generation is the generation that will continue our fight. We believe that the youth perspective is a very vital aspect to keeping the NAACP's cause alive.

END SYSTEMATIC OPPRESION

Racism's roots stem deep into the backbone of our very own country. We work hard and diligently to close the gap and heal the wounds that systemic racism has created. We look toward the future with high hope in achieving equity for all.

END ANTI-BLACKNESS

The NAACP is not an anti-white group. We welcome all allies to join us in the fight against racial injustice. We look to eliminate the anti-black sentiments our country and county has held for ages while preaching unity and understanding of different cultures in our community.
