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

Virtual Veterans Day Event
During this unexpected time of COVID-19 veterans have been faced with several challenges ranging from finances and finding medical providers to homelessness and obtaining approval of disability. Veterans have fought and died for this country and now they are asking questions about how they will be protected and how their well-being will be taken care of. The NAACP DeKalb “Virtual” Veterans Day Brunch is necessary to show support of our veterans and provide resources to help them thrive.
Join us as we “Honor Our Veterans” and thank them for their service. The keynote speaker is Army Brigadier General Richard Dix who will inform the community on how veterans cope during the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, we will have entertainment and a recognition of the military branches. Sponsorships are encouraged and Digital Advertisements are available at an affordable price.

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
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.
