The Religious Affairs Committee launches Summer Engagement Initiative

The NAACP has long valued its relationship with the religious community, recognizing the vital role that faith leaders and congregations have played in the civil rights movement. The Religious Affairs Committee is a pivotal entity in this collaboration, working closely with religious leaders. For over a century, this alliance has strengthened the organization's efforts to achieve social justice and equality to advance the NAACP's mission through a variety of initiatives.


  • Civic Engagement Opportunities: The Religious Affairs Committee organizes and promotes opportunities for religious communities to engage in civic activities. This includes voter registration drives, participation in public demonstrations, and advocacy for policy changes at local, state, and national levels.



  • Empowering Our Faith and Justice Communities: Our workshops inform religious communities about civil rights issues, historical context, and contemporary challenges. They empower faith leaders and congregants with the knowledge and tools needed to advocate for justice within their communities and beyond.



  • Interfaith Collaboration: By collaborating with NAACP programs, our partnership enhances the effectiveness of campaigns related to education, health, criminal justice reform, and economic empowerment. The Committee fosters unity among all religious denominations, encouraging them to work together towards common civil rights goals. This interfaith approach broadens the support base and amplifies the impact of their collective efforts.


Through these efforts, the NAACP Religious Affairs Committee harnesses religious leaders' moral authority, and influence to drive progress in the ongoing struggle for civil rights. This enduring partnership continues to inspire and mobilize communities nationwide in the fight for equality and justice.
