Mission Statement of the Million Man March

"We, the Black men and women, the organizations and persons participating in this historic Million Man March…concerned about increasing racism and the continuing commitment to white supremacy in this country; deteriorating social conditions, degradation of the environment and the impact of these on our community, the larger society, and the world…"

"We begin our challenge to corporations by rejecting the widespread notion … that corporations have no social responsibility except to maximize profit within the rules of an open and competitive market… The weight of corporations in modern life is overwhelming and their commitment to maximizing profit and technological efficiency can and often does lead to tremendous social costs such as deteriorating and dangerous working conditions, massive layoffs, harmful products projected as beneficial, environmental degradation, deindustrialization, corporate relocation, and disinvestment in social structures and development
