From DC City Council to Congress and the Supreme Court, the NAACP is driving civic engagement and legislative advocacy to realize racial equity and protect civil rights. Across communities and coalition partners in the District, the Political Action Committee is a hub for NAACP Members, voters, and like-minded organizations to collaborate on everything from voter registration drives and demonstrations, to candidate forums and voter mobilization. Together, we're organizing to empower Black voters and defend and expand the democratic process in the District of Columbia.
