I chose the NAACP because I believe we need to bridge the gap that keeps discrimination alive. I want to see equality and justice truly be for everyone. Being a part of the NAACP helps me be a part of the change I want to see in the world."Life begins at the end of your comfort zone." ~Neale Donald Walsch

I chose NAACP because of their mission to seek out and maintain social equality and justice for all. I believe as though everyone is equal to one another and should be treated as such.The NAACP raises awareness to such believes and pushes issues that are found in our flawed society about equality, racial profiling, and much more. I believe that all lives matter but black lives matter as well and this fact has been heavily ignored by society. The NAACP pushes this issue and informs that black lives do matter. The NAACP is also a way to get culturally informed. As a child raised in a rural area that was predominantly white I was not much informed about my African American history. The NAACP gives me the opportunity to learn more about my African American heritage and about organization like the NAACP that has helped the African American community get to where they are today."You will face many defeats in your life, but never let yourself be defeated" ~Dr. Maya Angelou
