Subseries 3. The Rainbow Coalition and The Rainbow Political Action Committee, 1985-1990

Scope and Content Notes:

This subseries documents The National Rainbow Coalition (NRC), now the Rainbow Push Coalition, and The Rainbow Political Action Committee (Rainbow PAC). Arranged alphabetically, it includes meeting minutes, by-laws, mailing lists, and national NRC materials. The Rainbow Coalition grew out of Jesse Jackson's 1984 presidential campaign. The coalition was and still is a national organization committed to social justice, civil rights and political activism. It was founded in order to help support candidates for public office dedicated to improving the lives of the powerless. Rabinowitz helped run the Rainbow PAC which functioned as a political action committee based on progressive politics and committed to social justice, democracy and solidarity. Although the Rainbow PAC was inspired by the NRC, they remained unconnected to the National Rainbow Coalition and free from the rules of the NRC.
