The Citizens' Councils, after 1956 the Citizens' Councils of America, (its enemies usually called it the "White Citizens' Councils") were a network of organizations opposing aspects of the Civil Rights Movement, primarily in the South. The first was founded in 1954 and by 1955 there were 60,000 members.

The Council of Conservative Citizens is stated to have continued some aspects.
