Join The Fight For Justice

Step up with a gift that reflects your commitment for democracy. This gift will ensure that Memphis protesters have legal representation.

Like his unfortunate predecessors Emmett Till, Rodney King, and Trayvon Martin, the late Mr. George Floyd will be forever etched in our collective American Psyche. For nine minutes and 29 seconds, Floyd begged for his life. Repeatedly, he asked for mercy but was given none. While the conviction of former police officer Derek Chauvin is a good step toward equality for all in America, it is just a start. There is still much work to do. Chauvin was not the only one on trial. The American justice system was also on trial.  While justice prevailed here, in so many other instances, it has not prevailed. Therefore, we at the NAACP Memphis Branch must continue pushing forward. In direct response to the murder of George Floyd and the ensuing protests, the NAACP Memphis Branch started the George Floyd Legal Defense Fund to assist with the legal defense of protestors and to engage in other civil rights causes in our community. We will stay vigilant, and we will stay committed.

Uplift the Community Grant

Attention all non-profits in the Memphis and Shelby County area!  Are you interested in having a positive impact on your community and need an “Uplift” to get you started?

The NAACP Memphis Branch, the New Tri-State Defender Newspaper and Kroger Delta Division present a new grant program called UPLIFT THE COMMUNITY.
