Welcome to the official Website of Kankakee County Branch 3035 of the NAACP.

The mission of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate race-based discrimination.

Through organization, education and advocacy, we’re working to bring about a society in which all individuals have equal rights without discrimination based on race.

Our branch meetings are open to the public and are held on the second Thursday of every month at 7PM in the KCCSI ground floor meeting room, 657 E. Court Street, Kankakee. Learn more.
