BRANCH HISTORY

The Pasadena Branch has a 97 year history in Pasadena.  It was charted by the National Office on September 8, 1919, and was the 16th charter issued by the National NAACP.  The Branch was founded when a small group of citizens answered the call of John Wright to respond to the needs of minority people in Pasadena.  Their first step was to build an organization which served as the voice of all those denied the basic dignities rightfully due human beings, especially African American citizens in the City of Pasadena.

Today the Pasadena Branch is still fighting for the basic human dignities  due human beings, in the City of Pasadena. Get involved!  Consider a membership so we can become stronger.

“DARKNESS CANNOT DRIVE OUT DARKNESS; ONLY LIGHT CAN DO THAT.  HATE CANNOT DRIVE OUT HATE; ONLY LOVE CAN DO THAT.  INJUSTICE ANYWHERE IS A THREAT TO JUSTICE EVERYWHERE.” DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING JR.
