In 2004 local residents of Harrisonburg City and Rockingham County came together to reorganize the local branch of the NAACP.    Forming in response to a complaint of racism, the group quickly reorganized to offer assistance.  From 2004 until now, NAACP Branch #7132 has worked along side of community organizations, local government, school boards, and law enforcement to ensure a society in which all individuals have equal rights without discrimination based on race.
