Our Civil Rights Are at a Crossroads

In the face of deep conflict and polarization, as basic freedoms and rights are under attack, no one can stand on the sidelines anymore. Our country and our civil rights are at a crossroads, much as they were during the lifetime of our founder, Sargent Shriver.

Watch our announcement video.

Join the Shriver Center on Poverty Law and the Sargent Shriver Peace Institute for our new event series, Civil Rights at a Crossroads: Igniting Activism for Racial and Economic Justice, starting in 2023. We’ll explore the parallels between the civil rights movement of the 1960s and the fight for racial justice today.
