We Support Campaign for Equal Dignity. So Can You.

08/06/2020

Cox Enterprises has contributed $125,000 to the National Center for Civil and Human Rights’ Campaign for Equal Dignity.  

The Campaign for Equal Dignity is responding in real time to events unfolding in our country, with a focus on the impact of COVID-19 and the movement for Black lives on civil rights issues. The campaign provides educational programming, conversation opportunities and a range of resources to help people — individuals, corporations, families, students — protect rights and dismantle structural racism. 

The contribution is part of the $1 million fund Cox created earlier this year to help champion inclusion and support organizations that work for social justice and civil and human rights. Cox employees helped determine where these funds should go, and three key areas were identified around racial discrimination, criminal justice and quality education. That feedback aligned with recommendations from our Inclusion & Diversity (I&D) and Corporate Social Responsibility teams. 

In addition to the National Center for Civil and Human Rights, including the Campaign for Equal Dignity and other initiatives, other organizations that will receive support from the fund include the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Action, the Equal Justice InitiativeUNCF and National Urban League

A Proud History of Civic Engagement 

At Cox, we have a long history of family civic engagement. The year 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of Governor Cox, our founder, running for president (with Franklin Delano Roosevelt as his running mate!). A tradition of patriotism and civic duty runs through our roots. It's a part of doing the right thing. Always. Gov. Cox was dedicated to serving in public office and educating the community through quality news and journalism. That commitment remains in the foundation of our values today and is reflected in our company’s purpose: Empower People Today to Build a Better Future for the Next Generation.
