How to Get Legal Help From the NAACP

By Mel Frank

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, also called the NAACP, is an organization that deals with issues of equality and primarily addresses cases of discrimination and similar instances. This includes not only African-Americans, but also women and other minorities. The main goal of the NAACP is to stop unfair discrimination. If you need legal assistance from the organization to help you with a matter at hand, often the NAACP can help you or point you in the right direction.

Contact your local NAACP branch. Visit NAACP.org and click the "Find Your Local Unit" option.

Enter your city and state and click the "Search" button.

Call your local branch, and let a representative know you are looking for legal help. Explain your situation, and you will be put in contact with someone who can provide legal assistance. Depending on your situation, the NAACP may assist you at no charge, or you may be put in contact with a lawyer who will require a fee for services.
