Judge Amit Mehta, presiding over Lee vs. Trump, the first civil legal action seeking to hold the former president accountable for his conduct connected to the January 6th insurrection and efforts to overturn the 2020 election, denied Trump the absolute immunity from suit that has always been afforded to presidents in the past for conduct occurring while serving in office.
NAACP was on the ground in key battleground states and deployed lawyers throughout the nation to monitor and respond to reports of voter suppression through their Voter Protection Hub, ensuring that every American was provided an opportunity to cast their ballot.
The NAACP Alabama State Conference were plaintiffs in the June Supreme Court case against Alabama where they rightfully argued that the state's congressional map was a clear attempt to minimize the voting power of the state's Black residents.

In the most consequential election in memory, it was essential for Black people to vote in massive numbers in 2022. And vote we did. NAACP played a crucial role, partnering with the data science firm GSSA to develop new tools and strategies for voter education and turnout in the midst of an ongoing pandemic. We built our program using cutting-edge data science combined with the engine of traditional organizing: the power of person-to-person connection.
Through outreach and training, we engaged Black coal miners, meat packers, and steelworkers with union and labor organizations to discuss the priorities of Black workers and families to ensure a just transition to a renewable energy economy.
