What Services Do Chapters and Affiliates Receive?
The National office understands that certified chapters will need professional support and organizational development to strengthen and maintain its chapter capacity…
Membership is the lifeblood of the SCLC. We challenges all people of good will and of every persuasion who believe in the principles espoused by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., to join us in our mission and become an SCLC member today!
As we continue to battle the triple evils of racism, poverty, and violence that Dr. King actively rivaled, SCLC, now more than ever, needs the assistance and patronage from the community and supporters in order to ensure that we are consistently able to pursue Dr, King’s “dream” for a better America and better world. Through your support we will be able to activate the 'strength to love' within the community of humankind.
Membership is critical to the growth and development of any organization. A strong sustaining membership base reflects a united voice and shows support of the organization’s mission. Membership also provides the human resources and financial support needed to fund and implement quality programs and services. Most importantly, membership allows you to show your appreciation to the countless people who have made precious sacrifices, including the ultimate sacrifice of their lives, to ensure that all citizens have equal opportunities and the protection of their human rights.
