Peoria Branch NAACP

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 Conference.

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!
