Crime and Justice
The North Carolina Black Alliance believes all citizens desire an environment that is safe, healthy and free of crime. We are committed to the diversity of our courts, the proper response to youth violence and gang initiatives in our schools and communities, fairness in enforcement, including eliminating racial profiling practices, ending sentencing disparities, and environmental justice.

Black Legal Network
The Black Legal Network is a loosely held network of individual attorneys looking for pro bono project opportunities around redistricting and election protection work. Black lawyers can help advance citizen participation and political power. The Black Legal Network is an initiative of the North Carolina Black Alliance (NCBA).
