With approximately 2,200 adult branches, youth councils, and college chapters in 49 states, 5 countries and the District of Columbia, the NAACP is actively engaged in increasing the African American responsiveness of citizens to be fully engaged in the democratic process.

Returning citizens. That’s what the NAACP calls people returning to their communities after being incarcerated. And after they return home, we work tirelessly to restore their dignity – starting with their right to vote.
