Our mission is to achieve equity, political rights, and social inclusion by advancing policies and practices that expand human and civil rights, eliminate discrimination, and accelerate the well-being, education, and economic security of Black people and all persons of color.


We envision an inclusive community rooted in liberation where all persons can exercise their civil and human rights without discrimination.


The NAACP State Area Conference coordinates the civil rights activities of freedom fighters and game-changing activists in our three states, and helps move forward the policies and initiatives of the NAACP National Board of Directors and our National Office Staff.
