The National Conference for Community and Justice of the Piedmont Triad, Inc. (NCCJ)
is a human relations organization that promotes understanding and respect among
all cultures, races and religions through advocacy, education and dialogue.
NCCJ does not advocate for any particular group or philosophy, but works to build
mutual respect among all people—regardless of race, culture, sexual orientation, gender, socioeconomic background or faith.

To promote understanding and respect across groups, NCCJ believes society must acknowledge the dynamics of power and privilege and the role individuals play in creating attitudes, behavior and practices that support systems of exclusion and oppression either overt or covert.

To fulfill its mission, NCCJ programs must create inclusive, respectful and just communities.

History

The National Conference for Community and Justice was founded in 1927 as The National Conference of Jews and Christians for the Advancement of Justice, Amity and Peace, and then became known as The National Conference of Christians and Jews. In 1999, the organization's name changed to The National Conference for Community and Justice.

Though the name changed, the mission of NCCJ remained the same: to fight bias, bigotry, and racism in America. NCCJ’s work is to transform communities through institutional change and by empowering leaders so that all people will have access to the nation's opportunities and be included in its promise.

NCCJ of the Piedmont Triad Inc., founded in 1937 as the “Greensboro Chapter," became an independent nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization in 2005.
