Diversity in Awarding Business Contracts

WHEREAS, the NAACP is this Nation's oldest and largest civil rights organization standing on the principals of equal justice, freedom and equality for any and all human beings; and

WHEREAS, African American businesses and other minority business owners are not represented in proportion to the ethnic minority prison population.

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the NAACP collect data, communicate its findings and make recommendations to improve the reallocation of vendor contracts within the federal and state correctional systems regarding African Americans and other ethnic minority businesses; and

BE IT FINALLY RESOLVED, that the NAACP calls upon its state and local units to advocate for legislation that will seek a fair distribution of vendor contracts within the federal and state correctional systems.
