The public is invited to join us as we memorialize many of the victims of terrorism and violence in the shadow of the Confederate flag in South Carolina and examine the way forward after the Charleston Massacre that addresses the core racial disparities that define the Campaign for Dignity in South Carolina
Press Conference & Legislative Watch
Tuesday, July 7, 2015 @ 12:00 PM; SC State House, 1st Floor Rotunda
This may be our final push before what we anticipate to be a historic vote on the future of South Carolina. We invite you to witness the deliberations in the House and Senate Chambers leading to what we hope will be a final vote to place the divisive banner of the Confederacy in a museum.
The South Carolina State Conference is the largest nonpartisan civil rights organization in South Carolina. Our units are located in every county in the state including all major municipalities. Our mission is to end race discrimination in all sectors of American society and bring about equality of justice and equal opportunity for all citizens. The Conference directs the Campaign for Dignity in South Carolina, a direct action initiative to increase public and economic pressure on legislators to retire the Confederate flag to a museum. Through various initiatives we seek to impact voter participation, education, community development, criminal justice, healthcare, housing, youth leadership, economic empowerment and citizen involvement.
