MANCHESTER NAACP, UNIT 2069, Est. 1964

National Association for the Advancement of Colored People Manchester, New Hampshire Unit 2069

Welcome to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) Manchester, New Hampshire Unit 2069. 

The NAACP was founded by an interracial group of prominent citizens in 1909 as a response to increasing violence against Black people in all parts of the country. NAACP continues to struggle against all forms of discrimination and unfair treatment whether social, legal or political.

We are not lawyers. We are community volunteers who are committed to social and economic justice. We work to address unfair discrimination and promote community building and cooperation. Please join us!

Notes from the President’s Corner
The political season in New Hampshire is about to shift into hyper-drive due to our status as the first primary in the nation. As we approach the general election. I am occasionally asked who the Manchester NAACP favors in one political race or the other or who we prefer from among the various political parties. My response is always the same. The NAACP locally and nationally recognizes that we do not have permanent political friends or political enemies only permanent political interests. We do not engage in partisan politics because our membership reflects the political spectrum, or tax status prohibits it and our community has  been under attack regardless of the party in office or the politician in power. So we don't play favorites with the politicians running for office or serving in office. Our favorites are the people we serve and the interests whom we promote.
