With Liberty and Justice For All

1942: While the United States fought World War II with a segregated military, the Black residents of Metuchen and Edison fought for racial equality at home. On October 13, the Metuchen-Edison Area Branch of the NAACP received its charter.

The list of our accomplishments over the past seven decades is impressive and rewarding.

Today, the NAACP Metuchen-Edison Area Branch continues the fight to achieve equality in all facets of life for African-Americans and other minorities. We approach each issue with the same fervor our predecessors did. We are the voice of people who for far too long have been ignored. In numbers we are strong! With a membership roster of dedicated and supportive individuals, affiliated and supportive organizations, we are heard loud and clear. Read more about the branch history here.

The NAACP needs your membership and participation to help us fulfill the promise of equal justice and freedom for all Americans!
