Report Civil Rights Violations  

Keep the local NAACP informed of the civil rights violations that you witness. File an official NAACP complaint if this violation has directly impacted you.

In order to track civil rights violations, the NAACP asks St. Mary's County folks to fill out a complaint form and disclaimer every time your civil rights, or the civil rights of others have been violated. Due to the nature of the NAACP organization, your complaint will not be acted upon unless it is completely filled out and your signature appears on every page. Forms can be downloaded in PDF format, printed, filled out, signed, and then mailed to us at:

Volunteers Needed for "St. Mary's County Reads"

“St. Mary’s County Reads” is a new literacy program that has been developed through a community collaboration with Southern Maryland Youth Ministries (SMYM), St. Mary’s County NAACP, the Department of Social Services (DSS) and the St. Mary’s County Public Library. It is designed to encourage children to develop an interest, habit and desire for reading and help children be ready to learn to read when they start kindergarten!

Volunteers will be at the Lexington Park Branch of DSS, on Mondays and Wednesdays for only one and a half hour intervals from 8:30 a.m-4:00 p.m. to read to young children who have come with their parents to the office for service. We want to help motivate children to read, encourage parents to read to their children and take advantage of the many programs and services for young children that the Library offers. Programs such as the 500 By Five Reading Program are designed to motivate parents and children to read 500 books by age five to help children be ready to learn to read when they start kindergarten!

Each volunteer will be expected to complete a consent for background clearance form, and it will require that their signature be notarized. If you are interested in volunteering and want more Information about St. Mary’s County Reads, Contact: Likie Milton (Southern Maryland Youth Ministry) e-mail: ld_milton@yahoo.com or Janice Walthour (NAACP), lwalthour@md.metrocast.net.
