Partnerships between the NAACP and other organizations are built on a shared vision of a fair world, free of racial discrimination and injustice, which implies solidarity beyond the implementation of specific programs and activities. Working with others towards common objectives creates the potential for real collaborative advantage. For this potential to be realized, the diverse knowledge, experience, and skills which each partner brings to the relationship are valued and acknowledged as essential to ensuring the success and sustainability of joint efforts
