NEWS / MAY 19, 2017


When the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) was founded in 1909, there were a number of undeniably stark realities facing black Americans that the creation of the NAACP sought to overcome.

NAACP STRATEGIC PLAN: GAME CHANGERS FOR THE 21ST CENTURY

For more than a century the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People has worked to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate race-based discrimination. Inspired by the force and commitment of The Call of 1909, which denounced the growing oppression of people of color and mobilized thousands to work to bring this discrimination to an end, the NAACP seeks to establish a strategic direction as it embarks on developing The New Call for the 21st Century.

In the fall of 2011, the NAACP launched a process to develop its strategic direction and plan, creating a powerful vision for the future, and setting organizational goals that would focus its work for the 21st Century.

The six NAACP Game Changers below address the major areas of inequality facing African Americans that are the focus of the NAACP’s work.







tHE VOTING RIGHTS ACT OF 1965





#Restore the Voting Rights Act!

Marchers cross Edmund Pettus Bridge, Selma, AL March 7, 2015. President Barack Obama and family were joined by Cornell William Brooks, President & CEO NAACP and Roslyn M. Brock, Chairman, National Board of Directors, NAACP. They commemorated the 50th anniversary of the historic voting rights march in Selma, in the wake of the gutting of the Voting Rights Act, and increased voter suppression laws.




The right to vote is one of the most valuable, and many would argue even sacred constitutional rights granted to most Americans. The Voting Rights Act of 1965 (VRA) was enacted to insure that those Constitution 15th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, no one, including federal, state or local government may in any way impede people from registering to vote or voting because of their race or ethnicity. Most provisions in the VRA, and specifically the portions that guarantee that no one may be denied the right to vote because of his or her race or color, are permanent.



We must tell Congress – both the House and the Senate – that the time to act is now! We must not delay and allow one more American to face unnecessary, unconstitutional, and undemocratic obstacles as they try to vote. Please see the attached Issue Alert for details.


CIVIL RIGHTS LEGISLATIVE REPORT CARDS 

The NAACP Washington Bureau has produced an annual Civil Rights Legislative Report Card since 1914. This resource is designed to provide NAACP members with insight into the general voting patterns of their congressional representatives over the course of the year. The NAACP Civil Rights Legislative Report Card demonstrates how every Member of Congress voted on the bread and butter civil rights issues and priorities important to the NAACP.
