WELCOME TO THE SAINT PAUL NAACP

The mission of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) is to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate race-based discrimination.

Founded in 1913, the Saint Paul branch serves all individuals who may experience discrimination based on race, gender, religion, age, disability or culture.  We welcome members of all races who would like to help make our city and state a more tolerant, equitable, and just community for all.
