With its headquarters in Atlanta, the Southern Christian
Leadership Conference was established by the Reverend Martin Luther
King to aid local civil rights organizations striving for full
equality in the United States. The group assisted in the larger

education projects, and voter-registration drives. The SCLC played
a large part in the 1963 civil rights march on Washington, D.C.
