Acronym or short name: ICP

ICP envisions an America where equality is created and sustained in community through access to good schools, affordable housing, safe neighborhoods, and economic opportunity. ICP wants to be a resource to those who share that vision by providing information about where those opportunities exist in the North Texas area, where they don’t, and why.

We will work with individuals and families seeking to secure the benefits of such communities, unfettered by discrimination and prejudice. And we will advocate and promote polices and practices that are consistent with this mission of inclusiveness, fairness, community, and opportunity.

ICP engages in educational, research, and advocacy activities that promote and support the policies underlying the passage of the Fair Housing Act of 1968, as amended, 42 USC 3601, et. seq. and related civil rights laws. These policies include the creation and maintenance of stable, racially, ethnically and economically integrated communities, expansion of fair and affordable housing opportunities for low income families, and seeking redress for policies and practices that perpetuate the effects of racial and ethnic discrimination and segregation.
