Organizations had an impact on changing the issues and made advancements for equality. Organizations like National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference would protest day and night through the streets for equal rights, and dangerous acts like lynching; fighting to get anti-lynching laws past. Riots were one of the most potent ways throughout the 1900’s that led to the advancements of equality. African American lives were taken as a result of these riots but people continued to fight for what they believed was right, until equality was given. Advancements in law changed laws which by and by fostered equality. Since they were unequal, this advancement in law soon led to reform to schools, churches, water fountains, and more.
