The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), founded in 1909, is the nation's oldest and largest civil rights organization. Its mission is to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate race-based discrimination.

The Arlington Branch, which was established in 1940, is fighting at the local, state, and federal level to create a society in which all individuals have equal rights without discrimination based on race. Please join us in our struggle for social justice.
