ASK US ABOUT THE "GET A LIFE" CAMPAIGN

For over years 100 years, the NAACP has been fighting for better education for our children, safer communities, ending the cradle to prison pipeline through prison reform, stopping police brutality, healthcare reform and an end to racism and so much more.

So, we are organizing supporters in Douglas and Paulding counties to fight for policies that respect and improve our communities. Membership is our lifeblood. Your renewal membership will help us fight the racial disparities that are still so prevalent in American education, jobs, housing, health care and criminal justice systems. ​

If you care about fighting the racial disparities that are still too prevalent in the Douglas and Paulding communities, the West Metro NAACP is the place where you can make a difference!​
