Today, the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund updated its report in opposition to the nomination of Jeff Sessions to be Attorney General of the United States with documentary materials. LDF has engaged in an extensive, painstaking and thorough review of its vast archives, and updated the report that it released yesterday with attachments that include:
Founded in 1940, the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc. (LDF) is the nation’s first civil and human rights law organization and has been completely separate from the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) since 1957—although LDF was originally founded by the NAACP and shares its commitment to equal rights. LDF’s Thurgood Marshall Institute is a multi-disciplinary and collaborative hub within LDF that launches targeted campaigns and undertakes innovative research to shape the civil rights narrative.
