The NAACP releases its 11th annual survey on the state of diversity in corporate America

The NAACP released its 11th annual survey on the state of diversity in corporate America, our Economic Reciprocity Initiative. The 2007 NAACP Consumer Choice and Best Practices Diversity Guides provide consumers with tools that enable them to make informed choices about their spending.
There is some good news in terms of advancements in employer diversity and community reinvestment. But, there is still significant ground to cover to advance economic opportunity for African Americans.

For the third year in a row, one of the nation's largest retailers, Target, has flat-out refused to participate. What are they hiding?

Tell Target to Take the NAACP Survey


African Americans contribute more than $700 billion a year to the economy--and a substantial amount of those hard earned dollars are spent in stores like Target. We are serious about holding companies accountable for respecting the value of African American consumers.

Economic empowerment isn't just a financial issue, it's a civil rights issue. African American consumers want fairness in the marketplace, just as they do in all other aspects of their lives.

We must demand economic diversity and transparency from corporate giants like Target. Tell Target to clarify its position on economic opportunity for African Americans by answering the NAACP's survey and supporting the Economic Reciprocity Initiative.

We won't look away from this issue, or from the companies that take our dollars then turn a blind eye to the needs of the African American community.


Sincerely,

Dennis Courtland Hayes
NAACP Interim President & CEO
