Help Bring Justice to Victims of Civil Rights Atrocities

Ensuring that the American people know the full history of the Civil Rights Era is a matter of national importance.  Today, several Civil Rights Cold Cases remain unsolved for a variety of reasons, including at times a lack of will on the part of law enforcement.

to help solve these atrocities.

and threats follow them from home into the workplace – each year, they lose nearly eight million days of paid work—the equivalent of more than 32,000 full-time jobs.
