Since 1950

The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights is the nation's oldest, largest, and most diverse civil and human rights coalition. From the beginning, we were forged to fight the intractable — together.

Our history

We are living in an era of unprecedented threats to our democracy and attacks on our rights, but we must remember that we — the diverse coalition of Americans of every background and identity and ability who know that we all have a stake in each other's lives and futures — are the majority in this country. Now is the time to act like it.
