The NAACP’s principal objective is to ensure the political, educational, social and economic equality of minority group 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.
Founded in 1909 in New York City by a group of black and white citizens committed to social justice. The NAACP is the nation’s largest and strongest civil rights organization.
