Experiencing Discrimination?
Update: Legal Redress Office Hours!
Your branch is here to help. If you have experienced discrimination, the very best way to get started is to fill out a  Discrimination Complaint . It will get us all the basic facts we need to determine whether we can help you directly or need to refer you to other resources.

Legal Redress has Office Hours from 11am-1pm on Thursdays at the Jacobs Center; please email redress@sandiegonaacp.org for an appointment.  Office Hours are a good way to get help filling out your complaint or to provide us information, but  we can not give legal advice during office hours.
