About Sacramento NAACP

Giving a Voice to the Voiceless
Celebrating 100 years of advocacy, the NAACP

While we have made many accomplishments as an organization and as Black people there is still much to do. The Greater Sacramento NAACP is committed to make the Sacramento Region the safest place to live in California and a model of community policing, demonstrated by a measurable decrease in crime and a measurable increase in community engagement. The Greater Sacramento NAACP is poised to unite the community to bring about systematic changes with solution based recommendations.

(1) Economic Stability
(2) Education

(4) Public Safety and Criminal Justice
(5) Voting Rights and Public Education
(6) Expanding Youth and Young Adult Engagement

The Greater Sacramento NAACP through its mission to bring about justice for all, will continue to illuminate the truth, remind us our past and will lead us to our future. We will continue to work in partnership to leverage our community strengths and will take note of past lessons to guide us through.
