The six NAACP Game Changers address the major areas of inequality facing African Americans that are the focus of the NAACP’s work.
We are inspired by community and believe in the innate power of people working together intergenerationally to drive change.
We acknowledge and learn from the past as we chart a new future with an unwavering commitment to racial equity and justice.
We act with integrity and maintain focus on values, the greater good, and mutual respect.
We are honest brokers and engage with authenticity around our goals, strategies, and practices.
We are global thinkers, problem-solvers, innovators, and disruptors, with a strong vision for what’s possible.
We are committed to a world without racism where Black people enjoy equitable opportunities in thriving communities. Our work is rooted in racial equity, civic engagement, and supportive policies and institutions for all marginalized people.
Our purpose is grounded in three approaches woven deeply into the fabric of who we are. Collectively, we refer to them as our ‘DNA,’ and we embed them affirmatively in all our work.
Racial equity is the presence of opportunity and systems that ensure fairness and justice, where race does not determine or predict life outcomes. We work to make the pie bigger – equitably redistributing and growing opportunities and resources, and empowering communities to dismantle the structures that limit one’s ability to thrive.
Our collective impact is more powerful than what any one of us can do, alone. When diverse people come together to problem solve, we create more innovative, inclusive, and productive solutions. We fuel civic engagement – connecting and amplifying community voices with a focus on voting, voting rights and political advocacy.
Our work seeks to influence the formation of public policy to create more equitable and supportive policies and institutions – moving toward a just society and addressing systematic racism.
