NAACP Legal Defense Fund

The NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc. (LDF) is America’s premier legal organization fighting for racial justice. Founded in 1940 under the leadership of Thurgood Marshall, who subsequently became the first African American U.S. Supreme Court Justice, LDF was launched at a time when the nation’s aspirations for equality and due process of law were stifled by widespread, state-sponsored racial inequality. From that era to the present, LDF’s mission has always been transformative: to achieve racial justice, equality, and an inclusive society.

Through litigation, advocacy, and public education, LDF seeks structural changes to expand democracy, eliminate disparities, and achieve racial justice in a society that fulfills the promise of equality for all Americans. Working in four inter-related focus areas—Political Participation, Criminal Justice Reform, Economic Justice, and Education Equity— LDF seeks to:

  • Achieve full African American civic engagement and participation in the democratic process.
  • Diminish the role of race in the criminal justice system.
  • Increase fairness and African American participation in all aspects of economic life.
  • Afford greater access to racially integrated, high quality public education for students of color and eliminate racial disparities in education.

Racial injustice has been and continues to be such a divisive force across the nation, and we are in such a climate where we need leaders and pioneers more than ever on the forefront to fight for racial justice and equality. This year and going forward, I decided that I want to be a part of the effort to achieve racial justice in hopes of building a future of a more inclusive society.

I’m so excited, that on Sunday, September 19, 2021, I will be participating in the Run Houston! University of Houston Presented by Norton Rose Fulbright 10K, 5K, 1K. I am participating in the event to raise awareness and funds for the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc. (LDF).  

For years, the LDF has sought to seek racial justice and equality through litigation, advocacy and public education. They have a few key principles and goals which I have personally adopted as my own. They are:

  • To achieve full African American civic engagement and participation in the democratic process.
  • Diminish the role of race in the criminal justice system.
  • Increase fairness and African American participation in all aspects of economic life.
  • Afford greater access to racially integrated, high quality public education for students of color and eliminate racial disparities in education.

I personally started donating to the LDF in 2020 because I believe in their cause and I want to continue to be a part of the effort for a much needed change. I ask that you join me in this fight for racial injustice by making a small donation to support such a big cause. 

Any amount would be great, I'm just appreciative of you caring to support me and this much needed program. It truly means more to me than I can express.
