“We must do better as a company and as a country. Actions are needed to impact change. As a start, we are committing $1 million over the next year to help combat social inequality and injustice and promote inclusive communities” — Bill Nash, CarMax president and CEO, June 2020
We view taking a stand against injustice as simply the right thing to do. We have made the first steps in carrying out our pledge to invest $1 million to combat social inequality and racial injustice with $50,000 donations each to the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund and the Center for Policing Equity.
LDF is one of the leading organizations fighting for racial justice for all Americans with a mission to achieve racial justice, equality, and an inclusive society. Through litigation, advocacy, and education, LDF is dedicated to creating structural changes to eliminate disparities and work toward racial justice and equality for all.
The Center for Policing Equity is a nonprofit that works with law enforcement and communities to make public safety less racist and less deadly. Police departments nationwide invite CPE scientists to review their data, and they work together to uncover and understand how bias in their policies and police behaviors disproportionally affect the vulnerable communities they serve.
We are continuing to listen to our Associates and our communities to determine our plan for additional investments to combat social inequality and injustice and to promote inclusive communities.
