The Eureka NAACP works to ensure that all disadvantaged students and Black and Brown, Latinx, Indigenous, and People of Color have access to diverse, equitable, and inclusive instruction, resources, and curriculum. We are dedicated to eliminating the severe racial inequities that continue to plague our Humboldt County education system. Our ultimate goal is that every student of color receives a quality public education that prepares them to be a contributing member of a democracy.
“Either America will destroy ignorance or ignorance will destroy the United States.” ― W.E.B. DuBois
David Josiah Lawson Scholarship
The David Josiah Lawson Memorial Scholarship awards funds to college-bound Black, Brown, and Indigenous, high school seniors based on academic achievement and service to their community.
