SUBJECT: With its trademark spirit of peace and non-violence, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference renames its Atlanta Headquarters.
As the Atlanta Police Department continues to investigate suspicious tweets and other social media references targeted at its LGBT community in the aftermath of the Orlando tragedy, we are reminded once again of Dr. Martin Luther King’s timeless message of peace, unity and non-violence.
It is in this spirit that we invite you to attend the official renaming of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference’s (SCLC) headquarters, located at 320 Auburn Avenue. The SCLC was established in 1957 as an interfaith advocacy organization that is committed to nonviolence and working towards quality and peace for all marginalized groups and individuals
The SCLC headquarters will be renamed for its current President and CEO, Dr. Charles Steele, Jr. on Tuesday, June 21, 2016 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
