NAACP Issues Statement on Corporate Social Responsibility

Styled image of money

Since our founding, the NAACP has been dedicated to informing the public of the adverse effects of racial discrimination and seeking its elimination. We are appreciative of the commitment and support from corporations to the NAACP in our fight for racial and social justice.

Over the last 20 years, the NAACP has engaged in partnerships that promote corporate social responsibility through our corporate scorecards, which evaluates a corporation's commitment and efforts towards creating an inclusive work culture, as well as economically inclusive business practices. While the impact and influence of corporate activity and support have been significant and widespread, the NAACP remains steadfast in our stance that all corporations should be committed to examining their internal structure, as well as their Board and C-suite diversity and inclusion initiatives. We hope that corporations will commit to engaging with the NAACP to foster diverse corporate culture and economically inclusive business practices.

Our latest strategy includes NACP ETF, which serves as a market-driven effort that highlights corporate commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. We stand ready to ensure that each corporation lives out its stated commitment to a diverse and inclusive corporate culture. We remain committed to dismantling and eliminating systemic racism and promoting economic inclusion for all.


Founded in 1909, the NAACP is the nation's oldest and largest nonpartisan civil rights organization. Its members throughout the United States and the world are the premier advocates for civil rights in their communities.
