2Title:  Greater Cleveland Welfare Rights Organization Photographs     
 Creator:  Greater Cleveland Welfare Rights Organization 
 Dates:  1965-1990 
 Abstract:  The Greater Cleveland Welfare Rights Organization (f. 1966) formed as a result of a protest march from Cleveland, Ohio, to Columbus, Ohio, in June of 1966. The march was led by Reverend Paul Younger of Fidelity Baptist Church in Cleveland with a small group of welfare recipients to highlight the plight of low-income people. This group used the march to put forth their demands of all people being able to meet their basic needs while having their dignity preserved. The organization grew and eventually a state affiliate, the Ohio Welfare Rights Organization, was formed as well as the National Welfare Rights Organization. In 1994 the Greater Cleveland Welfare Rights Organization (GCWRO) changed its name to the Empowerment Center of Greater Cleveland. The collection consists of 37 black and white prints, 226 color prints, 4 black and white negatives, 42 color negatives, 25 slides (24 black and white and 1 color), and 12 color transparencies.
