In the spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) is renewing its commitment to bring about the promise of “one nation, under God, indivisible” together with the commitment to activate the “strength to love” within the community of humankind.
"I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."
Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Promoting Social Justice, defending Civil Rights, aiding and empowering the disadvantaged.
SCLC’s focus is to educate youth and adults in the areas of personal responsibility, leadership potential, and community service; to ensure economic justice and civil rights and to eradicate racism wherever it exists.
