The Leadership Conference on Civil Rights (LCCR) was founded in 1950 by three giants of the civil rights movement — A. Philip Randolph, founder of the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters; Roy Wilkins, Executive Secretary of the NAACP; and Arnold Aronson, a leader of the National Jewish Community Relations Advisory Council. It is the nation's premier civil rights coalition, and it has coordinated the national legislative campaign on behalf of every major civil rights law since 1957.
LCCR consists of more than 192 national organizations, representing persons of color, women, children, labor unions, individuals with disabilities, older Americans, major religious groups, gays and lesbians and civil liberties and human rights groups. Its mission is to promote the enactment and enforcement of effective civil rights legislation and policy.
