About Congress of Racial Equality (CORE):

Founded in 1942, CORE is the third oldest and one of the "Big Four" civil rights groups in the United States. From the protests against "Jim Crow" laws of the 40's through the "Sit-ins" of the 50's, the "Freedom Rides" of the 60's, the cries for "Self-Determination" in the 70's, "Equal Opportunity" in the 80's, community development in the 90's, to the current demand for equal access to information, CORE has championed true equality. As the "shock troops" and pioneers of the civil rights movement, CORE has paved the way for the nation to follow.

Under the banner of "Truth! Logic! & Courage!," CORE continues to promote harmony and healing in all aspects of society; calling the shots straight -- even when it hurts -- and confronting the haters, race baiters and racial racketeers bent on keeping us apart.

CORE's National Headquarters is located in New York City. From there a network of local affiliates and chapters radiate across the United States, Africa, the Caribbean, Europe, Central and South America.

Membership in CORE is open to anyone who believes that "all people are created equal" and is willing to work towards the ultimate goal of true equality throughout the world.
