expand icon Historical Note
Citizens United for Racial Equality (CURE) was a grass-roots, non-profit organization dedicated to the integration of society and the promotion of racial equality in San Diego.  Established in 1968, the group was predominately white and sought to combat racism through the re-education of the white community.  In addition, CURE worked with similar organizations in order to support and coordinate mutual objectives and actions. The organization lobbied for the integration of San Diego schools and housing; held workshops on racism in conjunction with the University of California, San Diego; and led multi-ethnic discussion panels.  CURE also produced a monthly newsletter with approximately four thousand subscribers. A fifteen-member board of directors led the organization with the support of numerous volunteers.
