A Unified Voice Empowering People To Bring About Equality For All
The NAACP Lincoln Branch is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to eliminate discrimination and prejudice regardless of race, gender, class, sexual orientation, and faith. We work to ensure the social, economic, educational, and political equality of all persons through democratic processes.
The NAACP Lincoln Branch works for and envisions an America where all citizens have equal rights, equality of opportunities, and the scourges of racial hatred and discrimination are banished.

The Coronavirus pandemic has had an impact on our education and voting systems, affecting student success, representation of our communities, and more. Our policy briefs, statements, and letters bring awareness to and offer recommendations for issues surrounding health, education, economics, voter participation, and more. For more information view our national policy briefs, statements, and letters here.
Recent incidents are reminiscent of an atrocious era of hate and domestic terrorism where police officers and white protesters routinely brutalized African-Americans. The senseless death displays the continuance of systematic racism and privilege granted to white people in America.
It’s time to let our leaders know that We Are Done Dying
