We aim to further our mission to ensure equitable treatment and opportunities when it comes to voting rights, education, economic empowerment, criminal justice, and health, including environmental justice.
Ensuring all voices are heard
The Political Action Committee (PAC) is expected to increase awareness of registration and voting, fight for local, state and federal legislation designed to improve the educational, political and economic status of minority groups, work to repeal racially discriminatory legislation, and keep the community and Branch informed of all proposed legislation which affects minority groups. All political action shall be non-partisan.
