ATLANTA (NNPA) – This isn’t your father’s SCLC.The Southern Christian Leadership Conference, which just a few short years ago was on life-support, is now charging forward with renewed vigor under the leadership of its energetic president Charles Steele Jr. Not only has the Atlanta-based organization rebounded financially from years ago, but it has now expanded its services internationally, Steele announced recently during a media briefing at Paschal’s Restaurant. “We know how to march, how to picket, how to shut you down, but with our partners we’re moving to another level,” Steele said. Steele outlined organizational plans to open conflict resolutions and the pending groundbreaking of its new headquarters. SCLC opened a confliction resolution center in Dimona, Israel and Dayton, Ohio in 2005, and has plans to establish 50 domestic and 10 international centers in the next four years.
