Mission Statement

NATIONAL ACTION NETWORK

National Action Network is one of the leading civil rights organizations in the Nation with chapters throughout the entire United States. Founded in 1991 by Reverend Al Sharpton, NAN works within the spirit and tradition of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to promote a modern civil rights agenda that includes the fight for one standard of justice, decency and equal opportunities for all people regardless of race, religion, nationality or gender.

NAN has been largely credited with bringing into the national discussion issues such as racial profiling, the continued battle for police accountability, and coalescing Black and Brown communities to fight for immigration rights, and education and labor reform. NAN maintains strong platforms with regard to anti-violence, law enforcement, election reform, prisoner’s rights, health and disability protections, employment rights, business development, housing agencies, early childhood development, youth concerns, homelessness and a decency initiative. Membership in the National Action Network is opened to everyone regardless of race, creed, religion, or national origin, as NAN prides itself in being the megaphone for the voiceless.
