Creedo and Pledge of the Omaha, Nebraska Deporres Club
From its founding in 1947 through the 1950s, the DePorres Club was the leading civil rights organization in Omaha. Organized by Fr. John Markoe at Creighton University, this student-led integrationist group led some of the earliest civil rights protests in the city against employment discrimination, school segregation and housing discrimination. The DePorres Club followed this Credo written by Fr. Markoe.
