Mission Statement

We are committed to integration as a strategy as well as a philosophy for accomplishing equal opportunities because we believe that in the field of race "separate is inherently unequal." There is much evidence that a racially-fractionalized society perpetuates inequalities and imperils the unity of the nation. Moreover, a racially-polarized society reinforces stereotypes, and fosters intergroup suspicion, hostility and rivalry. NYCRC, therefore objects to all forms of segregation and schemes that in purpose or effect separate people on the flimsy basis of their skin color. Thus, NYCRC works to promote and strengthen racial harmony and understanding through the realization of the uniqueness of the individual, and by convincing "tomorrow’s people" that there is only one race to which we all belong, and that our humanity is the bond of our diversity and commonality.

Description

The New York Civil Rights Coalition (NYCRC) is an organization of people imbued with a 21st century orientation and who are concerned with kindling in Americans a spirit of unity and commitment in achieving a truly open and just society, where the individual enjoys the blessings of liberty free of racial prejudice, stigma, caste or discrimination. In this regard, NYCRC works purposefully to encourage people and institutions to take affirmative steps to achieve an integrated society--inclusive neighborhoods; strong, diverse, and interracial educational systems, both public and private; equal opportunity in employment and voting rights; and every citizen’s unfettered participation in the civic affairs of our democracy.
