Community News

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.
