113 years of fighting for change
In these uncertain times, we still have so much to celebrate. Not only is it Black History Month but also the NAACP’s 113th Birthday!
It was in 1909 that W.E.B. DuBois, Ida B. Wells, and a multi-racial coalition built the NAACP on the principles of allyship and collective power, knowing that no one is free until all of us are free.
The NAACP has worked to ingrain this founding lesson into everything we do, from fighting voter suppression and challenging inequality to uplifting and investing in our communities.
This February, we proudly reaffirm the undeniable truth that without Black history, there is no American history. From the advocacy of Black feminists like Sojourner Truth and Sue Brown to Civil Right’s heroes like John Lewis and C.T. Vivian, Black Americans have propelled our country forward in every chapter of our nation’s story.
We also recognize that there is still much hard work to be done, and so much history yet to be made!
Let us be clear: The NAACP will persist until we achieve social, political, and economic equality for all.
But to keep up our fight for a better, fairer future, we need our grassroots allies by our side.
We ask that if you can, DONATE!
And consider JOINING us in our work!
