The Federation has done a masterful job in handling the numerous
complaints of racial discrimination it receives annually; going on the merits of
each case, it has been instrumental in reversing many decisions, which would
have denied justice to an employee. Under its continued prodding and exhortation
on the importance of preparation, various types of training programs have been
established in the affiliated groups. The achievement on promotion examinations
by those having participated in these programs is a source of justifiable pride
to the Federation and it affiliates.
Although primarily concerned with advancing the ideals of equality in Civil
Service, the Federation is acutely aware that it is vitally effected by, and is
a part of the struggle taking place in other areas. Accordingly, we have worked
closely with various communities and other groups, such as the NAACP, Urban
League, New York State Association of Black & Puerto Rican Legislators, Inc.
We have awarded diligent employees in all sectors of our great nation. The
Federation is hopeful that it will be joined in the fight by all Americans who
desire this nation to reach its fullest potential in economic advancement and
the administration of social justice.
