Racial Equality Charities and Resources
National Association for the Advancement of Colored People
Founded in 1908, four journalists and activists came together to discuss the violent race riots occurring in Springfield, Illinois. As a result, they created a call for racial equality, leading to the formation of today’s NAACP. This call was signed by over sixty people, including W.E.B. Du Bois, a famous civil rights activist.
Center for Constitutional Rights
The Center for Constitutional Rights aims to end racial and social inequalities by challenging discriminatory legislation, advocating for human rights, and providing a voice to marginalized communities. The organization defends the rights laid out in the United States Constitution and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
The Advancement Project
This initiative was founded in 1999 by a group of civil rights activists and lawyers. After establishing the organization, the group went on to bring public attention to cases that involved unfair treatment of black students in schools. They also advocated for the rights of students affected by forms of segregation and racial discrimination.
