Voter Registration and Education

Those three words are the mantra of This is My Vote. They represent the most effective way to fight back against voter suppression and to make your voice heard in November.

Over and over again we see the impact lawmakers can have on our lives. By registering to cast your ballot and educating yourself on the requirements for voting, you can have the effect on our country that proponents of these these laws are seeking to prevent.

Registering to vote takes only 5 minutes. Head to the This is My Vote site, fill out your application, and mail it in today:

I know you've heard it before but I will keep on saying it, There is strength in numbers. We proved this in Sanford, Florida, and its been seen its proven all over the United States in the 100+ campaigns We know what can be achieved if our nationwide effort to register voters is successful: Elections will be swung, civil rights and social justice will take their rightful place on the policy agenda, and voter suppression laws will be rendered useless.

Don't overestimate the time it takes to register to vote. It only takes 5 minutes, the same amount of time it takes to send our registration link to your family and friends if you're already registered. Together, we can have a monumental impact.

The vision and mission of the NAACP are:

Vision - The vision of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is a society in which all individuals have equal rights and there is no racial hatred or racial discrimination.

Mission - The mission of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is to ensure the political, educational, social and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate racial hatred and racial discrimination.

    The NAACP, National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, is the oldest, largest and strongest Civil Rights Organization in the United States. The principal objective of the NAACP is to ensure the political, educational, social and economic equality of minority group citizens of the United States.

    What does the NAACP stand for? What is the NAACP doing today? These questions are frequently asked of NAACPers throughout the country on any given day. There is a clear mission, set forth by the National Board of Directors. The vision of the Association was created at a Board Retreat at Harvard University in April 2000. Although we use the terms vision, mission, goal, and objective frequently, it is no always clear to our volunteers what these terms mean. Here are definitions of the above terms:

  • Vision - (n) the act or power of imagination (b) mode of seeing or conceiving unusual. discernment or foresight direct mystical awareness of the supernatural usually in visible form.

  • Mission - (n) a specific task with which a person or a group is charged.

  • Goal - (n) suggests something attained only by prolonged effort and hardship.

  • Objective - (n) something aimed at; something real and observable.
