Our Mission

Organization Focus

The Organization

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

Martin Luther King, Jr

Our Mission

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.

Organization Focus

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.

The Organization

The Southern Christian Leadership Conference is a nonprofit, non-sectarian, inter-faith, advocacy organization that is committed to nonviolent action to achieve social, economic, and political justice.

 

The Southern Christian Leadership Conference consists of localized chapters and affiliates that are located throughout the country. The Southern Christian Leadership Conference chapters and affiliates support the organization by working in their respective communities to implement national programs (such as voter registration, improvement of education and direct action against any form of injustice or inequitable treatment) and stand as an advocate for those on the margins of society.
