The Leadership Conference Education Fund (LCEF) is an independent non-profit research organization established to support educational activities relevant to civil rights. LCEF's mission is to strengthen the nation's commitment to civil rights and equality of opportunity for all. Through a number of fora, the Fund seeks to communicate to the American people about the progress made in civil rights, the continuing challenges, and the strength of the nation's diversity. Specifically, LCEF monitors closely the Federal Government's enforcement of civil rights, Supreme Court decisions and legislative initiatives related to civil rights. LCEF serves as an information clearinghouse on civil rights issues, issuing reports for brad dissemination on the effectiveness of civil rights legislation as enforced by the courts and executive agencies and sponsoring conferences and symposia. LCEF publishes the CIVIL RIGHTS MONITOR, a quarterly newsletter monitoring the civil rights enforcement activities of the Federal government. Through its civil rights education campaign, LCEF seeks to build a national consensus to combat bigotry of all kinds.
