Congress of Racial Equality (CORE)

EI students volunteer at the CORE national office and fundraise.

Elisabeth Irwin is the first and only high school in the Metropolitan Area to have endorsed the program of the Congress of Racial Equality with such dedication and sincerity… It is a singular tribute to EI students that they have responded to this blight in our democracy—racial injustice—with such clarity and purpose. The funds they have raised and the long, patient hours they have spent in volunteer work at the CORE national office are a tribute to the level of consciousness they have developed as alert citizens of this country.

—James Farmer, CORE National Director
