    Racial Justice and Civil Rights

    These highly rated charities defend civil rights, protect legal rights, and promote tolerance and understanding.

    Following the murder of George Floyd in 2020, much of the nation's attention focused on racial injustice and the deep-rooted issues that allow inequality to continue. The pursuit of racial justice and equity continues with the goal of bringing about systemic change so that future generations can live in a world without prejudice.


    In an effort to provide those passionate about racial justice with resources, Charity Navigator presents this list of highly-rated nonprofits whose missions are focused on defending civil rights, protecting legal rights, and/or promoting tolerance and understanding among different races, and ethnicities, genders, religions, and cultures.


    The highly rated charities included in this list have earned their ratings by being financially efficient and transparent in their operations. These nonprofits are larger and national in scope.
