Our national organization is the oldest and boldest civil rights organization in the United States. We are an inclusive, welcoming group of folks who center justice in all that we do.
Our Branch was chartered in 1971 and is still very active in the community.
The monthly membership meetings are the second Thursday of each month at 6:30 pm. During the COVID-19 pandemic, they are by Zoom. Once we are able to return to in-person meetings, they will alternate between Albany and Corvallis and still be available on Zoom. The locations will be announced in the monthly newsletter. To receive the latest information on the meetings, sign up now.(Please be aware that the meeting will be recorded. You are not required to have a Zoom account for participation, but it is suggested you download the latest software onto the device you will be using before the meeting is scheduled to begin.)
The newsletter is emailed out at the beginning of each month. If you would like to receive the latest information on the activities of the Branch, sign up now.
There are so many ways to get involved and support the work of your local Branch of the NAACP!
Our Branch leadership team prides itself on being accessible to our community and welcomes all members, Branch friends, and guests to connect with us. Contact emails are listed at the end of each monthly newsletter. Branch Officers and Committee Chairs can also be contacted through their email links on the Branch Leadership page.
All members should be expected to find comfort in discomfort. The work of social justice and social change may oftentimes require an individual to be self-reflective and grapple with a host of emotions (joyfulness, disappointment, frustration, fear, etc.). To the end, it is important to recognize that we are all human and have been socialized within a society that awards privileged individuals and disregards individuals of minoritized identities.
