ACT-SO Student to Compete Saturday

COVID19 slowed us down but it did not stop us. NAACP DeKalb has installed three memorial markers in Dekalb County One in front of the DeKalb County Courthouse; One in William Perry Park , Lithonia; and the last marker at the corner of Ponce de Leon and Oakdale Ave. in Remembrance of the lynching and racial terror against Black people in the county.
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.
Join us on this journey; then show a loved one that you care by giving them the gift that works. Give a NAACP membership for birthdays, wedding gifts, graduations, and special occasions. The NAACP works for you.
