The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights


The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human RightsI came across this site in looking for organizations to support that are fighting for civil rights legislatively. This organization is worth checking out. As we see in this country in recent and everyday events we need to fundamentally ORGANIZE and take ACTION in any and every way possible!

The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights is a coalition charged by its diverse membership of more than 200 national organizations to promote and protect the civil and human rights of all persons in the United States. Through advocacy and outreach to targeted constituencies, The Leadership Conference works toward the goal of a more open and just society – an America as good as its ideals”.

The America We Find
Without a functional democracy that represents everyone, we cannot make progress on critical civil rights issues. But, at every turn, President Trump has eroded the rule of law and our democracy, and his administration has aggressively worked to undercut the power of communities of color and those historically excluded from our political process. When our democracy is in peril, so too are our civil rights.

The America We’re Building
This moment calls us to recognize democracy as the fundamental value upon which equality and inclusion rest. America is overdue for a 21st century democracy — and our coalition is committed to getting us there. By working to end racial discrimination in voting, ensure a fair and accurate 2020 Census, and demand impartial judges who will uphold civil rights, we are building a democracy where every voice matters and every vote valued.
