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.
During Jack Bryant's tenure with the Stamford NAACP from Youth Advisor to 1st Vice President to his current role of President, a partnership with the 100 Black Men, Inc., Kappa Alpha Psi Stamford Alumni Inc. and the Stamford NAACP Youth Council created an S.A.T. Preparation Course in conjunction with the Princeton Review. This partnership offered S.A.T. Prep Courses to students at a reduced cost.
Also during this time the Mighty Stamford NAACP Community Youth Choir was born. A group of 50 youth started singing at local churches and venues. Their talent was recognized by churches outside of Connecticut as the choir began traveling the East Coast ministering in song. Under his leadership as President, the Stamford NAACP in conjunction with its mission as a “reactive” organization has also become a “proactive” organization. "The Law and You" Workshop was born with the objective of improving the relationship between our youth in the community and the police department. Under the leadership of Jack Bryant the Stamford NAACP has become a vital organization within the community it serves dealing with Education, Health, Housing and Criminal Justice issues.
