in Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina and other states who have no one else to turn to but SCLC: 5) We shall extend our economic development programs which today include, among other things, housing developments for the elderly and handicapped in D.C. and Louisiana; 6) We can expand our staff to more effectively teach the philosophy and life-style of non-violence and pursue our challenge to all Americans for self-respect and renewed moral commitment--to combat the self-destructive effects of drugs, alcoholism, breakdown in family life, crime and youth delinquency.

Yes, we are still engaged in the struggle to replace violence and poverty with a system that will assure the dignity of every person.  Much of our struggle, in communities across the nation, is unheralded by the media -- struggles against racism expressed in denial of the ballot, unjust wages, high unemployment, inadequate housing and medical care, lack of economic opportunities and oppression in the criminal justice system.

Your faithful support is our life-line.  Please send us your contribution today.

Yours for love and justice,

Joseph E Lowery
