Congress of Racial Equality
A Leader in Civil Rights Since 1942
Thank you for visiting the online headquarters of the Congress of Racial Equality! CORE is one of America's original "Big Four" civil rights groups. Founded in 1942, it has fought for the rights and interests of minorities and the impoverished for more than 60 years. Join our movement and help make equality a reality for all!!
CORE has established an impeccable record of finding solutions to the most difficult problems facing minorities by:
(1) formulating the most pragmatic positions on important civil rights issues;
(2) instituting the most successful actions to bring about non-violent social, political and economic change for the underprivileged and thereby leading America down a path of equal opportunity for all of its citizens.
To many we have served as a buffer between them and a life of welfare, joblessness and dependency. To others we have been the last hope in a never-ending struggle against tragedy, depression and hopelessness. We are the light at the end of a long dark tunnel.
Learn about our Join America Program's pilot center in Southern Nevada to address this challenge.
