We are a non-profit organization that, with the help of our members, are attempting to bring people together in Pueblo, Colorado. We support cultural, educational and social community activities with the goal of community-building initiatives.
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 five NAACP Game Changers below address the major areas of inequality facing African Americans - this is one area of the NAACP’s work.
A chance to live the American Dream for all
Every person will have equal opportunity to achieve economic success, sustainability, and financial security.
A free, high-quality, public education for all
Every child will receive a free, high quality, equitably-funded, public pre-K and K-12
education followed by diverse opportunities for accessible, affordable vocational or
Health equality for all Americans including a healthy life and high-quality health care
Everyone will have equal access to affordable, high-quality health care, and racially
disparate health outcomes will end.
Public Safety and Criminal Justice
Equitable dispensation of justice for all
Disproportionate incarceration, racially motivated policing strategies, and racially
biased, discriminatory, and mandatory minimum sentencing will end. Incarceration will be greatly reduced and communities will be safer. The death penalty will be abolished at the state and federal level, as well as in the military.
Voting Rights and Political Representation
Protect and enhance voting rights and fair representation
Every American will have free, open, equal, and protected access to the vote and fair representation at all levels of the political process. By protecting democracy, enhancing equity, and increasing democratic participation and civic engagement, African Americans will be proportionally elected to political office
