NAACP chapter returns to CWRU

Case Western Reserve University is proud to announce the reinstatement of its chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). This initiative, led by the Department of FOCUS Outreach and the Office of Government and Community Relations, aims to strengthen the university’s commitment to social justice and inclusivity on campus and in the broader community.

The NAACP, established in 1909, has been a key player in advocating for the rights and well-being of African American and underrepresented communities. By collaborating with the Greater Cleveland NAACP Chapter, CWRU seeks to extend this legacy of positive change and activism. 

Membership is open to the entire CWRU community and beyond. Whether you’re a student, faculty member, or alumni, passionate about civil rights and social justice, your participation and feedback is valuable.

To become a member of the CWRU NAACP Chapter, please sign up online. The inauguration of CWRU’s chapter will be celebrated during the February Black History Month celebrations. Don’t miss this opportunity to be part of a historic movement at CWRU. Together, we can continue the fight for a world where everyone’s rights are respected and protected.
