Who We Are
The Oxford NAACP was chartered in 1943.
The Oxford Unit of the NAACP promotes civil rights and social justice at the local level, in Oxford, Ohio, and the Talawanda School District.
As part of the national organization, our goals are to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of the citizens, to eliminate prejudice, and remove barriers of racial discrimination.
“Never be limited by other people’s limited imaginations.”
