Founded in 1909, the NAACP is the nation's oldest and largest civil rights organization. From the ballot box to the classroom, the thousands of dedicated workers, organizers, leaders and members who make up the NAACP continue to fight for social justice for all Americans.

The Grand Valley Chapter of NAACP was brought to Grand Valley's campus the Fall of 2011. We hold true to our standards and strive for the advancement of all people of color.
