Why Membership Still Matters

"Is the NAACP necessary anymore?" "Is the NAACP still relevant?" "Does the NAACP still matter?" In a word, Yes. And we still need you.

Black Lives Matter. The Orlando Pulse club tragedy. Chicago gun violence, to name but a few reasons why the call to action for the NAACP is greater than ever before. To quote MMB President Eaton "these are desperate times for desperate people, but also a time to lift ourselves up." 

Former National President Benjamin Jealous explains why from battling the black incarceration rate to retooling public education, the NAACP’s 21st-century platform is nothing short of a “broad domestic human rights movement.”
