Sign Up for a Different Kind of Future

Put your name on the new Civil Rights Institute of Inland Southern California

In these times, it is critical for people to stand up for equal rights for all regardless of race, gender, national origin, age, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability.

The Civil Rights Institute of Inland Southern California is dedicated to protecting our civil rights now and in the future, as well as serving as an important center for inclusion regionwide and memorializing our region’s civil rights history. But it will take everyone’s help to achieve this goal. The Civil Rights Institute’s campaign will raise $1 million to build out the Institute’s facilities and $1 million to endow operations.

Honor a family, loved one, or let your community know you support civil rights by lending your name to this effort.  Donor granite tiles will be one-foot-square.

  • Leaders ($5,000): one name per tile up to 60 letters and spaces.

  • Advocates ($2,500 each): one of two names per tile, each up to 52 letters and spaces.

  • Marchers ($1,000 each): one of three names per tile, each up to 48 letters and spaces. 

  • Friends ($500 each): one of four names per tile, each up to 44 letters and spaces.
