)-- Atlanta Life Financial Group, Incorporated has donated $25,000 to The National Center for Civil and Human Rights, Incorporated. The donation is to help support The Center’s mission of empowering people to take the protection of every human’s rights personally.
“We are honored to invest in an effort that links the American Civil Rights Movement to the advancement of global human rights,” said Geoffrey C. Nnadi, President and Chief Executive Officer, Atlanta Life Financial Group. “This donation also allows us to further honor the legacy of our founder, Alonzo F. Herndon.”
"Atlanta Life has a history of supporting Georgia communities and encouraging them to thrive," said Deborah Richardson, Interim CEO of the Center for Civil and Human Rights. "As the first African-American insurance company in Atlanta, it has set an incredible example for the way businesses can make a difference."
Atlanta Life’s founder, Alonzo F. Herndon, was a former slave-turned-entrepreneur, who supported the advancement of African American business and community life. He joined W.E.B. DuBois as one of the twenty-nine founding members of the Niagara movement, the forerunner of the NAACP.
"We so are grateful for this contribution from Atlanta Life," Richardson continued. "It's nice to know our supporters are aligned with our vision for sharing the stories of the Civil Rights Movement and taking the protection of every human's rights personally."
