The management and governance of NAACP units are vested in the National NAACP's Board of Directors. The day-to-day operations of units is managed by the Executive Committee, which consists of elected officers, elected at-large committee members, and appointed committee chairs. In alignment with the NAACP strategic plan, the East Valley NAACP focuses on the NAACP Game Changers to determine our advocacy agenda and planning strategies.

The NAACP is a worldwide network of more than 2,200 units. Established on February 12, 1909, by a multiracial, multgender group of progressive thinkers, the NAACP is the nation's oldest, strongest, and largest civil rights organization in the United States. With more than a million members worldwide, the NAACP has established itself as the premier civil rights organization in the United States. Our branch was chartered in 1963, and has served the East Valley as a champion of social justice for more than 58 years.
The vision of the NAACP is to ensure a society in which all individuals have equal rights and to eradicate racial hatred or racial discrimination. The mission of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) is to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate race-based discrimination
“The humanity of all Americans is diminished when any group is denied rights granted to others.”
- Julian Bond, former Chairman Emeritus of the NAACP
