The Montclair NAACP was founded in 1916 in strong opposition to segregated schools, disparity in the workplace, healthcare and as a strong voice against the lack of fair and affordable housing which had become prevalent throughout the town. As a direct result of the outrage and organized forms of protest, Montclair has become well known for its rich diversity and community relations. We continue this fight today to secure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights to eliminate race-based discrimination and ensure the health and well-being of all persons.
The NAACP is as strong as the community that holds it up. Together, we can do more than we can do alone. The Montclair Chapter has over a dozen action Committees on topics that include Education, Voting Rights, Health Care and Housing that offer a wide range of volunteer opportunities for your consideration. We provide educational programs for the greater Montclair community, recent relevant topics include: Rent Control, Covid Relief, Economic Development and Health Care If you are not already a member, please join today to help to support our mission.
