Inclusive Communities Project
The Inclusive Communities Project (ICP) is a not-for-profit organization that works for the creation and maintenance of thriving racially and economically inclusive communities, expansion of fair and affordable housing opportunities for low income families, and redress for policies and practices that perpetuate the harmful effects of discrimination and segregation.
ICP envisions an America where equality is created and sustained in community through access to good schools, affordable housing, safe neighborhoods, and economic opportunity. ICP wants to be a resource to those who share that vision by providing information about where those opportunities exist in the North Texas area, where they don't, and why. We will work with individuals and families seeking to secure the benefits of such communities, unfettered by discrimination and prejudice. And we will advocate and promote polices and practices that are consistent with this mission of inclusiveness, fairness, community, and opportunity. Join us.
"We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny."
- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in “Letter from the Birmingham City Jail,” 1963
"We make two general assertions: (1) that American cities and suburbs suffer from galloping segregation, a malady so widespread and so deeply imbedded in the national psyche that many Americans, Negros as well as whites, have come to regard it as a natural condition; and (2) that the prime carrier of galloping segregation has been the Federal Government. First it built the ghettos; then it locked the gates; now it appears to be fumbling for the key. Nearly everything the Government touches turns to segregation, and the Government touches nearly everything."
- Senator Edward Brooke, 114 Congressional Record 2280 (1968)
