NAACP Interim president says, "It's time to turn up the heat on Target"


For the third year in a row, Target has refused to participate in the NAACP's annual survey on the state of diversity in corporate America, making them the largest retailer to refuse to answer questions about their company's diversity practices.

Last week, thousands of NAACP supporters like you helped send a clear message to Target that economic opportunity for African Americans must be a priority.

Now, as we enter the holiday shopping season, we need you to help us turn up the heat on Target. We need 100,000 people to sign the petition telling Target to Answer the Question.
.
If you haven't yet done so, you can click here to sign the petition.

If you've already signed the petition, please help us reach our goal by telling some friends about it .

African Americans contribute over $700 billion a year to the US economy, and deserve fairness and transparency from the companies that benefit from our hard-earned dollars. Tell Target to clarify its position on economic opportunity for African Americans by answering the NAACP's survey and supporting the Economic Reciprocity Initiative.

Economic empowerment isn't just a financial issue, it's a civil rights issue.


Sincerely,
Dennis Courtland Hayes
NAACP Interim President & CEO
