Take A Stand

For Equality

For Civil Rights

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People was founded on February 12, 1909. The NAACP is the nation’s oldest and largest civil rights organization. From the ballot box to the classroom, the thousands of dedicated workers, organizers, leaders, and members who make up the NAACP continue to fight for social justice for all Americans.

The time is now. By becoming a member of NAACP, you’ll join a network of activists standing up to injustice, fighting back against systemic racism, and answering the call for equality.

Springfield, MO Juneteenth Celebration

We had an amazing Juneteenth Celebration! In 2023, Community Partnership of the Ozarks, in collaboration with the NAACP of Springfield, offered the first city-wide Juneteenth weekend festival! As Springfield continues to strive towards equity and inclusion for the BIPOC community, it is only fitting that we celebrate this important holiday to the best of our ability. Juneteenth 16-19, 2023.
