Diverse group of teensThe Walker Project, Inc. (WPI) was established in 1990 pursuant to the Consent Decree in the Walker v. HUD housing desegregation litigation to promote fair housing and provide support to Walker class members. WPI operated in that capacity through the Spring of 2001. After several years of inactivity, the newly constituted Board of Directors of WPI changed the name of the 13-year-old non-profit, and committed to revitalize its activity in the area of civil rights, fair housing, and inclusive, non-discriminatory community development. As of April 28, 2004, the Walker Project became the Inclusive Communities Project (ICP).

ICP engages in direct services, educational, research, and advocacy activities that promote and support the policies underlying the passage of the Fair Housing Act of 1968, as amended, 42 USC 3601, et. seq. and related civil rights laws. These policies include the creation and maintenance of stable, racially, ethnically and economically integrated communities, expansion of fair and affordable housing opportunities for low-income families, and seeking redress for policies and practices that perpetuate the effects of racial and ethnic discrimination and segregation.

ICP is a 501(c)(3) corporation, and contributions are tax-deductible as allowed by law. The office is located at 3301 Elm Street, Dallas, Texas 75226. Inquiries about the organization should be addressed to info@inclusivecommunities.net.
