Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, II, State President of the NAACP, members of the State NAACP Executive Committee along with heads of progressive civil rights organizations throughout the state were hosted by Gov. Perdue in a first-of-its-kind policy discussion around issues affecting African-Americans and other minorities. The purpose of this 90-minute meeting was to articulate the NAACP'S 14-Point Agenda on education, economics, health, labor, criminal justice, housing, etc., which is supported by 85 statewide organizations and to make specific recommendations on the administration of the Stimulus Plan to ensure that it meets Title VI requirements for contracts in the use of federal funds in an effort to make all North Carolina more prosperous.
