ABOUT COLLIN COUNTY NAACP
It is an honor to lead the Collin County Branch of the NAACP as we continue to promote social justice and equality throughout Collin County. The Branch strives to fight for equality through civic advocacy initiatives. Our branch members are committed to improving the political, educational, social and economic status of minorities and to eliminating racial prejudice through educating the public on the adverse effects of racism.
Founded on February 12, 1909, the NAACP is the nation's oldest and largest civil rights organization. The NAACP has been in existence for over a century securing victories in the struggle for social justice and equality. In 2009, the NAACP celebrated a century of civic advocacy and countless strides towards social justice.
Today, the strategic priorities of the Collin County Branch are to advocate for equal employment opportunities, access to high quality education, youth leadership development, voter mobilization and health. Our branch works to address these priorities through the dedicated work of our volunteer members.
As a volunteer organization, all of our advocacy initiatives are implemented by our members who generously donate their time. As our branch grows, we welcome progressive minded individuals that are committed to achieving social justice in Collin County.
We invite you to join our branch meetings that are held on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at Collin College in Frisco, Texas.
