The mission of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) is to achieve equity, political rights, and social inclusion by advancing policies and practices that expand human and civil rights, eliminate discrimination, and accelerate the well-being, education, and economic security of Black people and all persons of color.
The five NAACP Game Changers below address the major areas of inequality facing all people of color--this is one area of the NAACP's work.
A chance for all to live the American dream.
Every person will have equal opportunity to achieve economic success, sustainability, and
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, people of color will be proportionally elected to political office.
