The mission of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) is to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate race-based discrimination.
The vision of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is to ensure a society in which all individuals have equal rights without discrimination based on race.
For 2021 and 2022, the local chapter embraces a new vision. Our new theme is: "Doing the Necessary Work" . We support the national objectives with a local point of view and strategy that meets the needs of the community we serve.
Our local chapter is guided by the rules and policies of the national association, which authorizes an Executive Committee to manage the routine business of the local chapter.

The COVID-19 pandemic impacted most organizations and reduced funding support during 2020. The local NAACP is no exception.
