Welcome to the virtual presence of the Manchester Branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). While our focus is on supporting people of color, we recognize that it takes people of all races, creeds, and colors to achieve our mission of securing the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights in order to eliminate race-based discrimination and ensure the health and well-being of all persons.
We are an advocacy group. We advocate for people and issues. If you have been discriminated against because of your color. We want to help. We advocate not through partisan politics - our membership reflect the political spectrum. But by calling out injustice. By speaking truth to power to authorities and those in power in the public and private sectors. By providing connections to resources and expert advice that help people of color live their lives to their fullest.
Our focus is the Greater Manchester area. The pages of this site describe the work we have done and the work we are doing. Because it takes all kinds of people to do this work, anyone can join us. Please peruse the site and get involved. For in the words of St. Francis of Assisi, “For it is in giving that we receive.”
