The NAACP has for several months been monitoring a pattern of disturbing incidents reported by African-American passengers, specific to American Airlines. In light of these confrontations, the NAACP issued a travel advisory on October 24, 2017 warning African Americans about their safety and well-being when patronizing American Airlines or traveling on American Airlines flights. The NAACP has called for a meeting with the leadership of American Airlines to air these grievances and to spur corrective action. Until these and other concerns are addressed, this national travel advisory will stand.
NAACP Forward will guide our commitment to advancing civil rights through the present political climate and century ahead. In towns and cities nationwide, NAACP Forward will engage communities, members, supporters, partners and allies to confront the threats that citizens face each day, from voter suppression to income inequality to biased law enforcement.
