Georgia-Pacific’s Long-term Commitment to Civil Rights
For decades Georgia-Pacific has been doing what’s right by creating meaningful partnerships with organizations that place a focus on civil and human rights and are consistent with our social stewardship efforts. Georgia-Pacific has a long history of supporting the civil rights movement, especially in Atlanta where we are headquartered. This includes working closely with the King family, Ebenezer Baptist Church and The King Center. Georgia-Pacific was one of the original founders of the The Center For Civil and Human Rights located in Atlanta. With the help of our long-standing partners, we aim to break down barriers and help underserved communities.
