New Discrimination Complaint Form

We wish that all the work we did was simply to provide uplift to our community; to celebrate and assist our wonderfully talented youth, to help people find good opportunities, services and other means to enrich their lives.

Unfortunately, we very often find ourselves trying to help people who have been discriminated against. The hardworking members of the Legal Redress Committee perform this work for the NAACP San Diego Branch. One of the things this committee has just done is overhauled our discrimination complaint form, to make it easier to understand and to get us more of the information we need to investigate your complaints.

Our new, friendlier Discrimination Complaint Form

ACT-SO Joins Futuristic Fun; Dream Tank and Vision Board

Care to envision the future? Want to plan to carry it out? ACT-SO is joining two futuristic events for young folks:

You’ve seen the mess old folks have made of the world; it’s up to you to straighten it out. Show up and show them new ideas to beat the old ones!

These events are both free and require no registration; just show up!

While the Vision Board Party will build on the Dream Tank, and it’s best if you can do both, you may attend either one without the other.

Here is how SD-YAMA describes itself:

San Diego Young Artists Music Academy (SDYAMA) offers a wide variety of programs in vocal, instrumental, choir, dance and many other positive activities in a healthy and safe environment. Our programs help develop culturally relevant and artistic activities for our students that promotes positive self-esteem and good order and discipline for young people. We make youth aware of their potential for creative self-expression and development. We foster a continuing interest in music and arts as a future career. We are also exposing our students to positive images, interacting and understanding between different cultures.

The San Diego Young Artists Music Academy is a 501(c) (3) whose mission is to enhance the lives of youth through music education and performances as deterrents to the drugs, gangs and violence prevalent in their communities.


SD-YAMA has very kindly agreed to share the cost with us of providing professional music instruction for our ACT-SO music competitors. Not only is their financial contribution greatly appreciated, but they also have a pool of instructors at the ready, saving ACT-SO from having to find, recruit, screen and schedule such lessons. We are beyond delighted to have SD-YAMA aboard!
