NAACP Constitution

NAACP was founded on the beliefs embodied in the Constitution of the United States of America. We support democracy, dignity and freedom.

Our members, in keeping with the charge of our founders, stand against all forms of injustice. The United States of America, built by us all, belongs to all of us. The repayment for our labor is equity and justice for all. We continue to fight for justice until all, without regard to race, gender, creed, or religion enjoy equal status.

The Constitution of the NAACP details the mission, vision, and people that drive our work.
