LDF Denounces Grand Jury Decision Not to Indict New York Police Officer Daniel Pantaleo in the Choking Death of Eric Garner12/03/14
Janai Nelson, LDF Associate Director-Counsel, joins a panel on the Diane Rehm Show to discuss the prospects of change in the aftermath of the Ferguson crisis.
Yesterday, NAACP Legal Defense Fund (LDF) President and Director-Counsel Sherrilyn Ifill participated in a White House meeting with President Barack Obama Vice President Joe Biden, representatives from law enforcement organizations, youth leaders, local elected officials and members of the faith community.
Today, LDF sent a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, urging swift confirmation of Charlotte Burrows, nominee for Commissioner of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), and David Lopez, nominee for General Counsel of the EEOC.
After deciding a trip to Ferguson, Missouri would be too disruptive, President Obama instead meets with civil rights leaders, including LDF President and Director Counsel Sherrilyn Ifill, and young organizers at the White House to discuss ways of rebuilding trust and improving relations between law enforcement and communities of color.
