Founded in 1909 in response to the ongoing violence against Black people around the country, the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) is the largest and most pre-eminent civil rights organization in the nation.
The Richmond, California Branch was chartered in 1944. Since that time, it has been led by those committed and dedicated volunteer souls, who many times sacrificed much, for us to be brought thus far along the way. The way, many times, has been clogged with injustices in politics, education, social services, and economic inequalities. However, as the above objectives states, we will continue to lead the charge against such injustices against people of color wherever it may occur in our City of Pride and Purpose.
