Legal Redress

The Legal Redress Committee works to address legal issues in our communities. The Harrisonburg Rockingham NAACP aims to increase 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.
