Tackling King's Triple Evils:
Poverty, Racism, and Militarism
"The Triple Evils are forms of violence that exist in a vicious cycle. They are interrelated, all-inclusive, and stand as barriers to our living...when we work to remedy one evil, we affect all evils" (Six Steps for Nonviolent Social Change). This MLK Day the ICRCM will help tackle King's Triple Evils.
The ICRCM will host a canned food drive from 10:00am-4:30pm. Please bring all canned food items to the International Civil Rights Center & Museum, 134 Sout Elm Street.

Teaching Our Kids to Dream
In the wake of numerous headlines where young lives are targeted, have our youth been robbed of their dreams for a better tomorrow? Just as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. dreamed of a harmonious nation, our youth too deserve such a dream. Join the International Civil Rights Center & Museum for youth orientated activities centered around Dr. King's "I Have A Dream" speech that will educate, encourage, and embrace today's youth to dream of bright futures for themselves and their communities.

A message to our generous supporters.
We opened our doors on February 1, 2010— more than four years ago. During this short time ICRCM has garnered a stellar reputation for promoting an understanding of the struggles for social justice and equality in the United States and across the world. In fact, through ICRCM, we link Greensboro to the world. We thank you for standing beside us, boosting our morale, and providing much needed financial support. And we ask that you continue this journey with us in the coming months and years.
We invite you to commit to furthering democracy and freedom through the work of the ICRCM. Before the end of 2014, please donate to show your endorsement of ICRCM’s efforts in your community.
With profound gratitude for your support, let us simply say “Thank you.”
