The purpose of affirmative action is to give our nation a way to finally address the systemic exclusion of individuals of talent on the basis of their gender, or race from opportunities to develop, perform, achieve and contribute. Affirmative action is an effort to develop systematic approach to open the doors of education, employment, and business development opportunities to qualified individuals who happen to be members of groups that have experienced long-standing and persistent discrimination.
The AAAA firmly believes that affirmative action is a policy that must be maintained to assure that the progress made by women, ethnic minorities and people with disabilities
is preserved. It is a policy that will allow the youth of this country to inherit a future where equality and fairness is a part of being an American.
