This Atlanta, Georgia based reform-oriented organization is considered the successor organization to the Commission on Interracial Cooperation (CIC). During the late 1940s and 1950s, the SRC was unique in its focus on interracial cooperation and struggled against massive resistance in the South. This organization continues to promote voter registration, political awareness, and racial equality.
