The NAACP’s principal objective is to ensure the political, educational, social and economic equality of minority group citizens of United States and eliminate race prejudice.

The Association is focused on disparities in economics, health care, education, voter empowerment and the criminal justice system, while also continuing its role as legal advocate for civil rights issues.
