In 2015, SCOPE and SCLC veteran John Reynolds headed a committee that produced a 50-year SCOPE/SCLC Reunion in Atlanta. Out of that gathering came a desire on the part of many attendees to form a nonprofit organization to carry on the work that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. called them to in the 1960s. That desire led to the incorporation of SCOPE50. John is now the President of the Board of Directors.
From the SCOPE50 WEBSITE:
“SCOPE50’s primary purpose is to promote and encourage voter registration nationally, and to assist with ‘get out the vote’ activities throughout the country. SCOPE50 is a non-partisan organization. We will not work for nor support any candidate or party. We will not be in opposition to any candidate. Our main purpose is voter registration and educating people on a grassroots level on the responsibility of citizenship.”
