Founded in 1909, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) is the nation's oldest and largest nonpartisan civil rights organization. The NAACP's adult and youth members throughout the United States and the world are the premier advocates for civil rights in their communities and monitor equal opportunity in the public and private sectors. In the fall of 2011, the NAACP launched a process to develop its strategic direction and plan, creating a powerful vision for the future, and setting organizational goals that would focus its work for the 21st Century. The six NAACP GAME CHANGERS (Economic Sustainability, Education, Health, Public Safety and Criminal Justice, Voting Rights and Political Representation, and expanding Youth Engagement) are the focus of the NAACP's work.
