Our Mission

TODAY,almost 70 years after the Civil Rights Movement began,
there is an urgent need to reaffirm and advance its core principles:

by the content of our character, not the color of our skin.

That's where FAIR comes in.

Those who seek these human values are the Exhausted Majority, and FAIR was created to give them a voice. FAIR is committed to celebrating our shared interests and values and advancing Martin Luther King Jr.’s vision of equality for all—without exception.
Our multidisciplinary expertise and network of professionals provide tools and resources to achieve this goal on educational, legal, medical, artistic, and financial fronts.
