About the NAACP
National Association for the Advancement of Colored People
Founded in 1909 in response to the ongoing violence against Black people around the country, the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) is the largest and most pre-eminent civil rights organization in the nation. There are over 2,200 units and branches across the nation, along with well over 2M activists.
Our mission is to achieve equity, political rights, and social inclusion by advancing policies and practices that expand human and civil rights, eliminate discrimination, and accelerate the well-being, education, and economic security of Black people and all persons of color.
We envision an inclusive community rooted in liberation where all persons can exercise their civil and human rights without discrimination.
The Greater Delaware Valley Branch is one of over two thousand NAACP units nationwide.
Established by the NAACP Board of Directors, in 1978, granting a new Unit, in Burlington County, NJ. On April 17, 1978, in accordance with Article I of the Constitution and Bylaws of the NAACP, the Unit was named Greater Delaware Valley Branch, Unit Number 2087-B.
The first President of the newly named Unit was Robert Barnett, Jr., who served from 1978 until 1982. In 1982, Eubert G. Brown was elected President and served until 1988. In 1988, Dr. Cleophus A Robinson II was elected President and served until 2016. In January of 2017 Edwina B. Sessons was elected President and remains in the position at this writing.
The past presidents, Eubert G. Brown and Dr. Cleophus A. Robinson II continue to be active in the Branch as exemplary members and leaders.
