About Congress of Racial Equality (CORE):

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.

To that end CORE has declared equal access to information, technology and healthcare its new civil rights focus for the 21st Century. Recognizing that the civil rights revolution in America was a tremendous victory for all decent thinking people, CORE now sees the need to prepare minorities so they may better maximize the many opportunities that are now available to them. With your continued support, CORE will continue to be the beacon of hope for all people who seek to enjoy the fullness and satisfaction offered by the 'American Dream.'

CORE is proud to begin the Dr. King Holiday Weekend by ringing the NASDAQ closing bell.
