WE BELIEVE IN THE AMERICAN DREAM FOR ALL
Every person deserves the right for an equal opportunity to achieve economic success, sustainability, and security. The NAACP recognizes the importance of the economy and economic issues in advancing an equal opportunity society and aims to address the challenging economic realities facing our country including poverty, lack of jobs and disproportionate high unemployment, lack of affordable housing, foreclosures, etc.
WE BELIEVE IN EDUCATION FOR ALL
The NAACP works to ensure that every disadvantaged student and student of color graduates ready for college or a career by ensuring access to great teaching, fair discipline, equitable resources, and a challenging curriculum. We are dedicated to eliminating the severe racial inequities that continue to plague our education system. Every student of color deserves a quality public education.
WE BELIEVE IN JUSTICE FOR ALL
The NAACP advocates for smarter, results-based criminal justice policies to keep our communities safe, including treatment for addiction and mental health problems, judicial discretion in sentencing, and an end to racial disparities at all levels of the system. The United States is home to the world’s largest prison population. And “tough on crime” laws have put an unprecedented number of non-violent offenders behind bars.
