Welcome to Virginia Commonwealth University's Chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People!
The mission of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is to ensure the political, educational, social and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate racial hatred and racial discrimination. For more than ninety five years, the NAACP built and grew on the collective courage from thousands of people. People of all races, nationalities and faiths united on one premise --that all men and women are created equal.
The nation's oldest civil rights organization has changed America's history. Despite violence, intimidation and hostile government policies, the NAACP and its grass-roots membership persevered!
NAACP at VCU will continue to encourage students to become members, increase community service activities, conduct fundraisers, promote forums, discussion panels, Town Hall Meetings and educate students on important current events that effect minorities. We also encourage students to become involved with the Student Government Association (SGA). Please feel free to contact us for more information and enjoy the site!
