A historian explains the country’s true independence day.
The NAACP Los Angeles is committed to equality and justice for all. Your oldest and most effective civil rights organization in the country will continue the fight for freedom until all people have realized the equal hand of justice. As we embark on a new generation of leaders picking up the fight for civil rights, I am proud to be the one leading the important work of the NAACP Los Angeles.
Our mission has been clear since our founding in 1909. We work to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate race-based discrimination.
Now, more than ever, we have to be vigilant, and make sure we are at the forefront of the movement to build political power and fight for the wellbeing of the Black Community. We find ourselves directly in the middle of yet another civil rights movement, and now is not the time to rest. I hope that you join all of us in the fight! Together we win!

The Building Bridges Project addresses a reality: Communities of color experience higher rates of violence than their white peers and lower rates of accessing services. Despite high rates of victimization, only 10.1% of Black serious violence victims received assistance from victim service agencies from 2010-2015. Nearly 90 percent of victims of a serious crime did not receive assistance in the aftermath of their trauma.
In 1909 civil rights activists and reformers gather in New York to create a multicultural organization to fight the civil injustices facing African Americans. The Founding of the NAACP presented by NBC News narrated by Lester Holt, Anchor and Managing Editor of NBC Nightly News.
