PURPOSE OF COMPLAINT FORM
Please be advised that filing a complaint of discrimination with the NAACP is considered a request for support and does not gaurantee that the NAACP will represent you in any matter, legal or otherwise. The filing of a this form does not form an attorney-client relationship. The NAACP may not give legal advice to any persons or entity, but upon investigating a matter, may refer any person or entity seeking legal advice to attorneys who are available to receive such referrals.
The Iowa-Nebraska NAACP State Area Conference of Branches will seek to refer complaints to the appropriate local unit or agency for processing. In some cases which merit state level involvement, the Iowa-Nebraska NAACP retains the option to process the complaint directly or in concert with a local unit/branch.
ADDITIONAL TIME-SENSITIVE INFORMATION:
If you believe that you have a discrimination claim, we strongly recommend that you also file a claim with the appropriate local, state or federal agency as soon as possible. Failure to do so may limit the opportunity to rectify the issue. Filing time limits can be as short as 90 to 300 days. Please find a list of some agencies here.
