NAACP DeKalb

The 2020 vision of NAACP DeKalb is to EDUCATE the public on matters that impact them; EQUIP them with the necessary resources; and EMPOWER them to use this information to grow stronger.

Join us in the fight for freedom

The United States Constitution requires that the nation’s population is counted every ten years to ensure equal representation for all communities. The entire population of the United States must be counted, not just citizens. For many reasons, it is vitally important that everyone is counted.

The official count helps to ensure fair political representation.  Fill out 2020 Census Forms HERE

#GetVoteReady

Get all the facts to be a voter for the 2020 election.  Where to register?  When is the deadline for registering?  What is my precinct?  Can I vote by absentee ballot?  How do I get more information?  We answer all of these questions in the 2020 voting cycle.  CLICK HERE 

NAACP Dekalb Branch recommends that you start early and vote early in this election cycle.  The pandemic has created a need to vote several different ways.  Vote early is the best choice this year.

When We Fight, We Win.

Corvid19 slowed us down but it did not stop us. NAACP DeKalb installed a plaque in front of the DeKalb County Courthouse in Remembrance of the lynching and racial terror against Black people in the county. A formal ceremony will be held later after a change in the shelter-in-place order for this pandemic. More details coming soon.

Informed Georgians for Justice

Get updated information on political races at this site. 
  www.InformedGeorgiansForJustice.com

Informed Georgians for Justice is a non-partisan volunteer organization of concerned citizens. The organization aims to educate the voting public about the 2020 candidates for sheriff, district attorney and solicitor in all 159 counties in the state.  Many voters do not realize the impact these elected officials have on criminal justice issues.  IGJ informs citizens about the importance of voting in these elections. 
Currently, IGJ is conducting a voter education project sponsored by the Georgia NAACP.  IGJ is gathering information through a candidate questionnaire containing approximately 35 yes/no questions regarding specific criminal justice issues. The questions presented were determined with input from numerous organizations with diverse perspectives.

NAACP

Our mission has been clear since our founding in 1909.  We work to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate race-based discrimination.


 

Discrimination is real. It happens everyday and it could happen to you.  If you have a discrimination complaint about an event that has occurred in DeKalb County Georgia let us know.  Contact us.

We ask that those who seek our assistance put their complaint in writing, provide as much information as possible. The Legal Redress committee will contact you within 3 business days in an attempt to help where possible, or provide guidance to individuals on how to exercise their rights. The NAACP Dekalb County Branch may provide legal information and assistance to concerned citizens, but does not provide legal advice or legal information via e-mail. For legal advice, you should consult a local attorney.
