DFW Metro NAACP Legal Redress Team/Committee *NO LEGAL BACKGROUND NEEDED
Please visit the new page to apply.
The Legal Redress Committee works to address legal issues in our communities. The DFW Metro NAACP Branch aims to increase the awareness of injustices. Our goal is to build community partnerships and take a proactive approach to address disparate treatment of blacks in all aspects of law enforcement, education, employment, and the legal system. The Legal Redress Committee does not provide legal representation, but will investigate complaints that cover the full range of civil rights concerns (employment discrimination, education, courtroom justice, housing, retail service, etc.), and may provide referrals and other assistance.
About DFW Metro NAACP

Ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of all citizens. Achieve equality of rights and eliminate race prejudice among the citizens of the United States. Remove all barriers of racial discrimination through democratic processes.
We are the home of grassroots activism for civil rights and social justice. Our branch also prioritizes volunteering to make a difference and impact on our local community.
A few examples of our 2020-2021 Impact:
2020 We executed a mass canvassing campaign and put out 20,000 Voter Registration Cards at local apartments and senior citizen communities.
2020 we had our first annual Back Pack and School Supply Drive that benefited local students at several Title I Schools.
2021 participated in a local Juneteenth Celebration at Music City Mall. We did Voter Registration and Membership Drive during this event.
2021 partnered with a local church for a Back to School Fair which included: Free Box Fan Give Away, Free School Supplies & Back-Packs, Free Food, Entertainment, Voter Registration, and other free items were distributed.
2021 partnered with 2 local organizations to distribute essential baskets filled with personal hygiene items, household goods, etc. Over 700 baskets were distributed in 2021 to support families at local Title I Schools.
We have presented several Virtual Forums to Educate and provide valuable resources to our community and beyond, such as: Understanding the 2021 Texas Constitutional Amendments on the Ballot, "Break the Chains of Bad Credit & Financial Bondage", Rent & Eviction Relief Forum, Forum on Texas Re-Districting, Election Law, and many more.
This is a Virtual Opportunity with no fixed address.
