American Association for Affirmative Action (AAAA), a national not-for-profit association dedicated to promoting the understanding of affirmative action and equal opportunity, announces today that it will hold its 34th annual conference in the Washington D.C. area. Every year the AAAA conference draws hundreds of supporters from the corporate, academic, and government sectors seeking the leadership, support, and resources needed to overcome both political and corporate challenges.

Griffin; Comedian & Civil Rights Activist, Dick Gregory; VP of Corporate Responsibility, Dell Inc., Gilbert F.
