Rita Schwerner, of the Council of Federated Organizations (COFO), writes to Anne Braden, of the Southern Conference Educational Fund, Inc. concerning a community center that COFO is planning to establish under her and her husband’s leadership. Ms. Schwerner explains that she hopes for the community center to ultimately act as a base for all activities including voter registration, but that the center desperately needs money and supplies. She calls upon Ms. Braden and the Southern Conference Educational Fund for assistance, and asks them to run an article appealing for assistance of any kind.
