WELCOME to the
Welcome to the webpage of the West Virginia University Collegiate Chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (WVUNAACP). The term "colored" is no longer appropriate, the term "People of Color" is much more acceptable, and classifies a much larger group of individuals. The NAACP is a nationally recognized organization that has fought for, maintained, and protected the civil rights of ALL people!
Founded in 1909, the NAACP was established to combat lynchings, segregation and injustices happening to people of color during the time! Today, NAACP fights to maintain civil rights having to do with, voting rights, equal pay, police brutality, education, healthcare, and advocacy.
Membership is open to all individuals no matter their race, sexual orientation or religion! We support everyone and ensure social justice for all!
