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.
