Join the NAACP


The NAACP has been leading the fight for freedom for more than 100 years. The Association ensures the political, educational, social and economic equality of people of color by holding the government and corporate America accountable. Your membership is invaluable to the continued existence of NAACP advocacy initiatives, outreach programs and litigation efforts.

Who can BE A MEMBER of the NAACP?

Anyone who supports the mission of the NAACP, irrespective of race, religion, political affiliation or ideology, can become a member of the Association. Members can affiliate with the local youth, college, or adult Unit in their area.


Headquartered in Baltimore, Maryland, the NAACP has seven regional offices and approximately 2,200 Units across the country, including Branch 3035 right here in Kankakee County. Each Unit consists of volunteers who advance the Association’s civil rights agenda through a number of programs and initiatives.

Join the fight for freedom today! Although we’ve made great progress toward equality since the founding of our organization, we must still struggle on to achieve a truly just society that is free of racial discrimination. When you become a member of the NAACP, you’ll be part of the leading civil rights organization in our nation and our community.
