Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable… Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.
–Martin Luther King Jr.
The history of the NAACP is one of blood sweat and tears with bold investigations of mob brutality, organizing non-violent protests against mass murders, segregation and discrimination. It is the skills, talent, commitment and tenacity of NAACP members that has saved lives and changed many negative aspects of American society.
For decades, the NAACP Maricopa County Branch has been fulfilling the promise of equal rights for all by fighting for and addressing civil rights issues in Maricopa County and throughout Arizona. Today, our branch is proud to carry on the goals and objectives of the NAACP National Office and continues to be active in providing equality for all citizens in Arizona.
