Donald R. Jackson, President
About the President:
Donald R. Jackson is the current President of the Peoria branch of the NAACP and the President of the NAACP Illinois State
Mr. Jackson was admitted to the practice of law in April, 1974, while working as a field attorney for the National Labor
Relations Board (NLRB). That practical experience allowed him to be hired by Bradley University as a part-time instructor
teaching the principals of collective bargaining to junior/senior level students in the College of Business.
Early in his career as a private practitioner, Mr. Jackson expanded his practice to include Civil Rights representation
and litigation. Mr. Jackson has processed claims for clients before the Illinois Department of Human Rights (IHDR) and the
Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
Mr. Jackson has extensive litigation experience in the Federal District Court Title VII claims of race, sex, retaliation,
hostile work environment, FMLA, and handicap discrimination involving public and private entities. Similarly, he has litigated
like claims before the Human Rights Commission. Mr. Jackson has argued civil rights cases before the Appellate Court, Illinois
Supreme Court, and the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals.
Mr. Jackson is the one who ensures racism does not play in Peoria!
