The Center’s Groundbreaking


The National Center for Civil and Human Rights works to create a more just and equitable society through dynamic and empathy-building experiences, teaching history’s connection to the present, and inspiring the change-maker in each of us. Each year, nearly 200,000 guests of all demographics enter The Center and leave with the knowledge necessary to create a more equal and just society.

In 2021, The Center launched an ambitious $53 million expansion campaign to add two new wings to our building and invest in our programs. Having raised more than $32 million so far (for capital and programs), we are excited to get construction underway with a groundbreaking ceremony.

WHEN: Friday, October 14, 2022 A light breakfast will be served at 9am with the groundbreaking ceremony following at 10 am.
