The Global Sullivan Principles

“I make no excuses about it, I am like Robin Hood. I take from the rich and give to the poor. It is high time at last for the world to wake up and do more for Africa." – Leon H Sullivan


Leon H Sullivan belonged to West Virginia and became the pastor of the Zion Baptist Church in 1950. Sullivan believed that dependence upon the public assistance was an enormous insult to the African Americans and only job could provide the true empowerment for them. He was successful to organize a selective patronage program to boycott those companies (basically Philadelphian), which did not provide equal opportunity in employment. That program successfully opened the door for thousands of African American, though most of them needed to be trained. In 1964 Sullivan founded opportunities Industrialization center, through which he used to train the African American people and tried to make them suitable to fulfill the job requirements. In 1977 Leon H Sullivan launched “The Global Sullivan Principles” which is believed to be as a powerful venture to secure social justice. These principles are the guidelines corporate accountability and responsibility. The Global Sullivan Principles have the purposes of supporting the social and political justice by the companies, as well as securing the equal opportunity at all levels
