Tennessee NAACP’s Advocacy Vision and Goals
As trusted representatives of the nation’s civil rights issues, the NAACP and its members are dedicated to leadership for achievement of defined goals. Our shared vision is a powerful, united, energetic association- an influential advocate and a catalyst for aligning the power of the community on behalf of its citizens. Working in partnership with its members, NAACP has embraced four fundamental strategic goals in order to fulfill its mission of equity and excellence in public policy through effective legislation and leadership:
* Every Branch/Unit will lead its community in preparing all students to succeed in a rapidly changing global society by insuring equity and excellence in education.
* Tennesseans will value and invest in Health Care for all Tennesseans, and actively support and understand the critical role of community/advocacy as essential for the preservation of a democratic society.
*State legislatures, the courts, and other decision makers will support policies and provide resources to strengthen economics by supporting a living wage and other critical labor issues.
* Tennessee NAACP will be a creative organization that maintains a sound infrastructure, serves its members in a fast and flexible manner, supports continuous improvement in its advocacy, and generates resources to support its mission through Tennessee NAACP programs and activities.
