The NAACP is a multi-racial civil rights organization founded 112 years ago. The Lycoming Tri-County Branch is part of the Pennsylvania Conference of the national organization, serving Lycoming, Clinton, and Northumberland Counties (Union and Snyder which do not have an active NAACP unit also contribute to our membership). We are proud to be members of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, even though its name sounds like a throwback to another era. This storied organization has a long history of fighting for civil rights and the end of racist practices in our country. Our local branch seeks to educate, raise up Black voices, and cultivate the community energy of residents in our region to make changes here.
Our local branch holds meetings once a week on Wednesdays at 5pm by zoom. Committees also meet at separate times. For info on how to join the meetings contact us by email, text, or phone at email@example.com or 570-360-9250. To become a member, visit the national NAACP website membership page. Our formal name is Lycoming Tri-County NAACP – Unit #2348.
We have organized committees working now on these topics:
- Voter Registration and Education
- Black History
- Public Safety / Police Reform
- Civil Rights / Discrimination

Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.Martin Luther King, Jr., 1957
