NAACP Forward

NAACP Forward will guide our commitment to advancing civil rights through the present political climate and century ahead. In towns and cities nationwide, NAACP Forward will engage communities, members, supporters, partners and allies to confront the threats that citizens face each day, from voter suppression to income inequality to biased law enforcement. Along with public meetings, NAACP Forward will include smaller discussions with elected officials and community leaders on how best to support local and national social justice efforts.
