COFO stands for the “Council of Federated Organizations.” It’s made up of four organizations. Have you heard of any of these organizations or some of their members? 

Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC): Martin Luther King, Jr

Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC): John Lewis

National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP): Medgar Evers

Congress of Racial Equality (CORE): James Farmer

In Jackson, Mississippi, we visited the current headquarters of COFO, as well as the Masonic Lodge where COFO once had offices. The Lodge is still used to fight racial injustice.
