MISSION STATEMENT:

The Center for Social Justice & Civil Liberties is a museum, archive, and educational center operated by the Riverside Community College District and dedicated to catalyzing an ongoing dialogue on historical and contemporary social issues through dynamic exhibits and community participation.

In the years to come, the Center aspires to:

Share regional, national and global stories that shape contemporary understandings of social justice and civil liberties issues.

Advance programs exploring equity, justice, and diversity of K-12 and college students.

Illuminate the Miné Okubo Collection as a resource for scholarship on race, culture, politics, and art.

​Provide a safe, open, and equitable platform for community generated discussion of these core themes.
