The mission of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate race-based discrimination.
About The NAACP Anchorage Branch
The NAACP Anchorage Branch was chartered in 1951. Founders such as John W. Thomas, Blanche McSmith, Clarence and Flossie Coleman, Joseph M. Jackson, John S. Parks and Mr. and Mrs. Richard Watts were spurred into action when the dream home of an African American was burned to the ground before he could move into an all-white neighborhood in Anchorage, Alaska.
The following statement of objectives is found on the first page of the NAACP Constitution:
The principal objectives of the Association shall be:
* To ensure the political, educational, social and economic equality of all citizens
* To achieve equality of rights and eliminate race prejudice among the citizens of the United States
* To remove all barriers of racial discrimination through democratic processes
* To seek enactment and enforcement of federal, state and local laws securing civil rights
* To inform the public of the adverse effects of racial discrimination and to seek its elimination
* To educate persons as to their constitutional rights and to take all lawful action to secure the exercise thereof, and to take any other lawful action in furtherance of these objectives, consistent with the NAACPs Articles of Incorporation and this Constitution.
