26PURPOSEFor more than 100 years the oldest Civil Rights organization, NAACP, in America constantly echoes the rights of every individual to equal justice under the law. Beyond the premise of race, ethnicity and political labels ALL mankind are the same. Thus, as stated in the Constitution – “Americans endowed with certain inalienable rights…guaranteed equal justice under the law”. With this assurance, TLOD strides to make an impact on the lives of all Americans to dream and enjoy the pursuit of life in its fullest. As President Benjamin Jealous remarked: “That is an important truth worth remembering and celebrating in today’s divisive, contentious times. America’s promise of equal justice, rights and opportunity for all defines and distinguishes our nation. And how well we fulfill that promise speaks volumes about our national character”.
