Political Action Committee Charter
The Political Action Committee works for the enactment of municipal and state legislation designed to improve the educational, political, and economic status of minority groups, and seeks the repeal of racially discriminatory legislation. The committee works to improve the administration of justice and secure equal enforcement of the law. And finally, we keep the National Office and the Unit informed of all proposed legislation that affects minority groups.
We are nonpartisan and do not endorse candidates for public office.
