A Pro-Equality Group Dedicated to Ending Racial Injustice

The NAACP Mid-Manhattan Branch is an arm to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored Peoples. The establishment of our chapter in November 1965 has paved the way for mobilizing initiatives that target racial discrimination. From then on, we have consistently been recognized on a local, state-wide, and national level as one of the association’s premier branches.

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored Peoples is an organization formed in response to the racial disparities that have been prevalent in our nation for centuries. Since its founding on February 12, 1909, it remains the largest and most actively engaged civil rights organization in the country.

Through the updates we provide, we aim to unravel the truth in this long-running societal issue and to put forth action that achieves equality in all facets of life. Find information on our organization, our committees, and the latest events within the African-American and larger American communities on this website.

"Our Lives Matter, Our Voice Counts."  

As President of the NAACP Mid-Manhattan Branch, it is a pleasure to welcome you to our branch’s new website.

Since its founding on February 12, 1909, the NAACP remains the largest and most actively engaged civil rights organization in the country. The Mid- Manhattan Branch has experienced a 50-year history and has consistently been recognized on a local, state and national level as one of the Association’s premier branches.   

We are proud of the many accomplishments of our Mid-Manhattan branch and we are proud of our continued growth and sustainability despite seeming insurmountable challenges and opposition to our social justice agenda. The primary focus of the NAACP continues to be the protection and enhancement of the civil rights, equal justice and fair treatment for all people.

Our journey for justice and equality is still relevant today.  It is our goal to serve and preserve positive relationships with our local community. We will continue to uphold the mission and vision of the Association, and I look forward to all the wonderful work that we will accomplish together.

Membership is the “Life Blood of the Association,” and is the guiding force of the Mid-Manhattan Branch. We cannot achieve our mission without it. Your NAACP membership is more than a contribution. You are joining the team that has been on the forefront of civil and human rights battles for more than one hundred years and I invite you to “Please Join the NAACP” and become an Active Member!

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said: "Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter"

 

Thank you for supporting the Mid-Manhattan Branch.

Best regards,

Geoffrey E. Eaton, 
President
