WELCOME TO the auburn/cayuga naacp
The Auburn/Cayuga Branch of the NAACP is a Unit chartered by the New York State Conference of the National Association on for the Advancement of Colored People. We are dedicated to serving the Auburn and Cayuga County community.
After decades of progress, hate is on the rise across America. At rallies, on television, and across the Web racism and race-baiting has crept back into our public discourse. Against that tide we call on all Americans to stand for the values that have made our country great.

About The Freedom Fund:
The NAACP Freedom Fun began in 1953 (on a national level) as a ten-year program to intensify efforts to complete the job of emancipation. Near the culmination of this effort, Medgar W. Evers, a heroic NAACP Mississippi Field Secretary, was killed by an assassin’s bullet. This prompted the NAACP Chairman Bishop Stephen Spottswood to pay tribute to this gallant warrior at the NAACP Convention in Chicago, Illinois in July 1963. He did so by proclaiming that the NAACP Fighting Fund for Freedom will continue until the job of emancipating our people is complete.
We remain focused on fighting the injustices in our county through our “Game Changers” and partnerships with other organizations. Take a look at what we are dedicated to in order to eradicate racism and ensure equity for all people of color.
Protect and enhance voting rights and fair representation.
The NAACP, along with our half-million adult and youth members throughout the United States, are frontline advocates committed to raising awareness for political, educational, social and economic equality of minority group citizens in the electoral process.
PUBLIC SAFETY & CRIMINAL JUSTICE
Equitable dispensation of justice for all.
The NAACP advocates for smarter, results-based criminal justice policies to keep our communities safe, including treatment for addiction and mental health problems, judicial discretion in sentencing, and an end to racial disparities at all levels of the system.
A free, high-quality, public education for all.
The NAACP works to ensure that every disadvantaged student and student of color graduates ready for college or a career by ensuring access to great teaching, fair discipline, equitable resources and challenging curriculum.
Health equality for all Americans including a healthy life and high-quality health care.
The mission of the NAACP is to ensure equal political, educational, social, and economic rights for all persons and to eliminate race-based discrimination.
A chance to live the American Dream for all.
Every person will have equal opportunity to achieve economic success, sustainability, and financial security.
“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world."
