On Tuesday, November 12, the NAACP will host a special town hall featuring Sen. Cory Booker and Senator Kamala Harris, along with Derrick Johnson, NAACP President and CEO, and Bradford M. Berry, NAACP General Counsel to call attention to a Comcast Supreme Court case.
Tomorrow, November 13, the Supreme Court will hear one of the most important civil rights cases in decades.
Comcast, the largest U.S. cable provider, is urging the Supreme Court to roll back vital protections in one of the country’s longest-standing civil rights laws—Section 1981. Comcast, backed by the Trump administration, is attempting to turn back the clock on civil rights, making it harder for Black businesses and contractors to challenge racial discrimination under a law that has been around since 1866. This is an outright attack on civil rights and the NAACP will do everything in its power to fight it.
