Support Your NAACP Houston Branch

There isn’t a state in America that hasn’t been touched by the NAACP. We’ve made tremendous progress on important issues like voting rights and voter registration, racial profiling, economic inequality, and more.

Supporters like you helped us accomplish so much, and we need you again this year. We need to keep pressure on Congress to pass real legislation to create jobs, end economic inequality, and improve education. We need to make sure the Affordable Care Act is implemented so millions of Americans have the healthcare coverage they need. We need to keep fighting for voting rights in the face of those who seek to make it harder to vote.

Join our community is fighting to protect civil rights and human rights in 2019 and beyond.
