File A Civil Rights Complaint

If you believe that you have been the target of discrimination, it is critical that you comply with all legal deadlines and notice requirements related to your claim.  

For instance, to preserve an employment discrimination claim under Kansas state law, you must file with the Kansas Human Rights Commission (KHRC) within 180 days of the date you believe you were discriminated against.  To preserve your claim under federal law, you must file with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) within 300 days of the date you believe you were discriminated against. 

For some civil rights violations, you may be required to file a notice or pursue options with a government agency before you can file a lawsuit in court. All these claims are governed by strict legal requirements related to time deadlines and notice requirements. Failure to abide by them could prevent you from pursuing your claim in court.

Contacting the Kansas State Conference of NAACP Branches or any branch does not eliminate your duty to file the necessary notice(s), nor does it toll the statute of limitations.  You are still required to meet the statutory deadlines.

The Kansas State Conference of NAACP Branches requires all complainants to complete and sign a complaint form.  Once submitted, the complaint form will then be processed by the Branch closest in geographic proximity to where the alleged discrimination occurred. 

To file a complaint with the Kansas State Conference of NAACP Branches, (1) the alleged discriminatory act(s) must have occurred in Kansas, and (2) The matter cannot be already pending in any court of law.

Due to the sheer volume of complaints received, the Kansas State Conference of NAACP Branches cannot pursue every matter.  Our ability to assist is directly related to our available resources.  Therefore, we are unable to accept criminal case complaints at this time.

If your need is immediate and urgent, contact a private attorney, a local public defender, or the state’s bar association.
