Dear NAACP Family,

It is an honor to lead the historic Washington, DC NAACP Branch as we continue to promote social justice and equality in the nation's capitol. The Washington, DC Branch strives to fight for equality through civic advocacy initiatives. Our branch began on June 3, 1913 and today, we have over 1,800 members committed to improving the political, educational, social and economic status of minorities and to eliminating racial prejudice through educating the public on the adverse effects of racism. 

Founded on February 12, 1909, the NAACP is the nation's oldest and largest civil rights organization. The NAACP has been in existence for over a century securing victories in the struggle for social justice and equality. In 2009, the NAACP celebrated a century of civic advocacy and countless strides towards social justice. 

Today, the strategic priorities of the NAACP DC Branch are to advocate for equal employment opportunities, access to high quality education, youth leadership development, voter mobilization and health.   Our branch works to address these priorities through the dedicated work of our volunteer members supporting over 17 standing committees, including ACT-SO, Criminal Justice, Climate Justice, Economic, Education, Fundraising, Health, International Affairs, Legal Redress, Membership, Political Action, Public Relations, Religious Affairs, Veteran Affairs, Women in NAACP (WIN), Young Adults and Youth Works. 

As a volunteer organization, all of our advocacy initiatives are implemented by our members who generously donate their time. As our branch grows, we welcome progressive minded individuals that are committed to achieving social justice in our nation's capitol.
