The NAACP Freedom Fund began in 1953 to intensify efforts to complete the job of emancipation and will continue until the job is complete.
The NAACP, one of the oldest civil rights organizations in the United States history, was founded in 1909 serving individuals regardless of race, creed or color. The mission of the NAACP remains to ensure the political, educational, social and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate race-based discrimination. In light of the current social climate in America we need to stand together more than ever.
