NAACP Buffalo Branch

NAACP Buffalo Branch The Buffalo Branch of the NAACP shall be to improve the political, educational, social and economic status of minority groups. The Buffalo Branch NAACP since its inception, primarily serves the African American community within the Buffalo area.
(4)

With the enactment of the Civil Rights legislations, social, government and private agencies have come into being, such as the NYS Human Rights Commission and Equal Opportunity Commission (EOC). These groups and agencies have the legal authority to act for aggrieved persons. So while the NAACP continues to receive these complaints the local branch refers those cases they cannot, or have no authority to handle, to the proper designated agencies.

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

For generations, African Americans in this country have faced an anti-Black pandemic.

This moment has exposed the inequality embedded in the underlying fabric of our nation.

Join the thousands - virtually-who will March on Washington to set forth a bold new Black agenda restore and recommit to the dream. The Commitment March, convened by Rev. Al Sharpton and Martin Luther King III, will gather at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C., for an inclusive day of action. #NonstopToNovember
