BLACK AMERICA NEEDS YOU
Now is the time to give to Black America.
The NAACP is working to secure a future where everyone can exercise their civil and human rights in every aspect of life — education, health, criminal justice, and the environment — without discrimination.
There's too much at stake, and the future of our communities relies on your gift. Double your impact to help us support Black America by confronting the biggest issues facing the Black community.
Give the gift of advocacy today.
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.
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. The Supreme Court ruled in favor of drawing a new Alabama congressional map which will allow for greater representation of Black voters in the state.
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.
Now is the time to further your commitment to the NAACP. Through our advocacy and philanthropy, our activists are building a future where the Black community will thrive.- Derrick Johnson, President and CEO, NAACP
To respond to skyrocketing housing instability, we launched a pilot housing program in South Carolina, which currently faces the highest levels of potential evictions in the nation. Based out of Columbia, S.C., the program pairs volunteer housing navigators - trained NAACP members, faith leaders, social workers, and law students - with tenants facing eviction. Navigators work with tenants to access critical legal and nonlegal services, like rental assistance, and help tenants understand their legal rights and prevent eviction.
The program also links tenants who are behind on rent with a new pro bono eviction diversion clinic, staffed by local lawyers to represent those tenants in critical negotiations with their landlords. So far, more than 60 navigators and 40 pro bono lawyers have volunteered their time and expertise.
With your generosity, we're ready to develop similar programs elsewhere in the country.
