BOULDER COUNTY

Chartered in  2017, the Boulder County Branch of the NAACP works with advocates and agencies throughout the county on issues that affect our greater community. Joining a committee is a great way to share your gifts and talent, meet new people, and stand as an ally for justice and equity.

— Civic Engagement

We are committed to raising awareness and power through community forums and events to foster positive political, social, and economic change.

— Communication

The Communications team works to promote media content consistent with fundamental NAACP goals which include: the elimination of racial isolation and fear and the furtherance of multiracial and cultural understanding. Outreach to allies and membership throughout Boulder County, as well as the promotion of information and events, are top priorities.

— Criminal Justice

Our Committee actively engages with Community Members and Leaders, Students, City Councils, the Boulder County DA’s Office, Law Enforcement to guard against Civil Rights abuses and transgressions.

— Economic Opportunity

The Economic Opportunity committee works to ensure that our local economy leaves no one out. Our objectives include the promotion and growth of Black and People of Color entrepreneurship and to increase workforce diversity in both public and private businesses.

— Education

We are focused on the opportunity gaps between students of Color, students in economic need, and students learning English. We address structural racism within our schools, including  disproportionate discipline, bullying and special education identification of students of color as well as advocating toward more equitable longterm outcomes and access.  

— Environmental & Climate Justice

We work to address the many practices that are harming communities, at the local and state level, addressing the policies needed to rectify these negative impacts and advance a society that fosters sustainable, cooperative, regenerative communities that uphold all rights for all people in harmony with the earth.

— Freedom Fund

The Freedom Fund planning committee is responsible for organizing our branch’s annual fundraising event. While the event varies from year to year, the Freedom Fund’s primary goal is to financially support our local branch and work with community organizations whose mission align with ours.

Religious Affairs

The religious affairs committee (RAC) of the Boulder County NAACP is committed to following a moral compass in our pursuit of racial justice. We are made up of clergy and lay leaders who honor the commitment to the religious language of diverse faith traditions, while acknowledging that we need to view each other and our connections as one human family, living on a shared planet.

— Housing

NAACP Boulder County is committed to and advocates for: the prioritized access to quality/adequate affordable housing; the proactive elimination of housing discrimination practices—including those that systemically pose barriers to securing fair housing (both public and private); and homeownership lending programs that purposefully accommodate qualifying families with low-to-moderate incomes.
