The NAACP was founded in 1909 and is the largest civil rights organization in the country. In 1909, the NAACP commenced what has become its legacy of fighting legal battles to win social justice for African-Americans and indeed, for all Americans. The most significant of these battles were fought and won under the leadership of Charles Hamilton Houston and his student and protégée, Thurgood Marshall.

The NAACP's Legal Department focuses on class actions and other cases of broad significance in areas including employment, education, housing, environmental justice, criminal law and voting. 
 
The NAACP Tri-State Conference of Idaho, Nevada and Utah web-site is a great way to publicize our work. We will inform the public about new charters, keep members informed of issues in each state, and attract a broader audience. We will use this site to get the word out about our organization and create a better sense of community among our members. We will also outreach into the communities to increase memberships in our Adult Branches, College Chapters and Youth Councils. In areas where there are no College Chapters or Youth Councils, we will work to charter these units. Membership in the NAACP is open to everyone, contrary to the beliefs that it is only for African Americans.

NAACP 5 Game Changers for the 21st Century
 
For more than a century the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People has worked to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate race-based discrimination. Inspired by the force and commitment of The Call of 1909, which denounced the growing oppression of people of color and mobilized thousands to work to bring this discrimination to an end, the NAACP seeks to establish a strategic direction as it embarks on developing The New Call for the 21st Century.

In the fall of 2011, the NAACP launched a process to develop its strategic direction and plan, creating a powerful vision for the future, and setting organizational goals that would focus its work for the 21st Century.

The five NAACP Game Changers below address the major areas of inequality facing African Americans that are the focus of the NAACP’s work.

Economic Sustainability

A chance to live the American Dream for all.

Every person will have equal opportunity to achieve economic success, sustainability, and financial security.

Education

A free, high-quality, public education for all.

Every child will receive a free, high quality, equitably-funded, public pre-K and K-12 education followed by diverse opportunities for accessible, affordable vocational or university education.

Health

Health equality for all Americans including a healthy life and high-quality health care.

Everyone will have equal access to affordable, high-quality health care, and racially disparate health outcomes will end.
 
Public Safety and Criminal Justice

Equitable dispensation of justice for all.

Disproportionate incarceration, racially motivated policing strategies, and racially biased, discriminatory, and mandatory minimum sentencing will end. Incarceration will be greatly reduced and communities will be safer. The death penalty will be abolished at the state and federal level, as well as in the military.

Voting Rights and Political Representation

Protect and enhance voting rights and fair representation.

Every American will have free, open, equal, and protected access to the vote and fair representation at all levels of the political process. By protecting democracy, enhancing equity, and increasing democratic participation and civic engagement, African Americans will be proportionally elected to political office.

Making these game changers a reality will require the Board of Directors’ leadership, broad outreach in venues such as regional and state conferences, an effective program to educate national, state, and local leaders about the plan and participation of the units.
