They say in an email I recently received:
The NAACP, in conjunction with the American Civil Liberties Union, the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Southern University Law Center, has provided some additional legal support and resources to the defendants’ attorneys and remains committed to the defense of the remaining young men.
