The NAACP Financial Freedom Campaign is based on the theory that organizing and community mobilization, improved access to quality products and services, and monitoring to ensure the absence of discrimination results in improved financial security and economic solvency.
The Financial Freedom Campaign is a micro-grantee process, in which the Economic Department sub grants funds to NAACP State Conferences to administer financial education and economic advocacy campaigns in local communities around the nation.
Through these campaigns, grantees develop short and long term state economic plans; serve on larger advocacy coalitions, hold economic education events and provide access to resources for the larger community. Youth and College chapters also conduct age appropriate economic education events and workshops. This initiative is executed in coordination with our financial partners and non-profit partners.
The Economic Education program is under the leadership of Manager Dawn Chase.
