Inclusion takes intention.

NCCJ is dedicated to fighting bias, bigotry and racism in all their forms. We work year-round with students, educators, and companies. We can help you approach difficult topics from a place of curiosity and practice connecting more effectively with people who are different from you. That’s how we bridge divisions and build more respectful and compassionate communities. How can we help your group move forward?

We’ll Meet You Where You Are

As we remain physically distanced for a little while longer, it’s vital that we stay socially connected. NCCJ now offers many of our workplace and in-school programs in a virtual format. Have questions, or want to schedule a program for your organization? Contact us today!

5 Community Practices for more respectful, effective conversations

To build the future we envision – a future where every community is a place of promise with opportunity and justice for all – we must all learn to engage with each other. If we can’t talk to each other with civility and respect, we won’t be able to find the common ground we need to live and work together.

That’s why NCCJ’s board of directors (a diverse group of people from across our community) invites you to join us in an initiative called Open Minds, Respectful Voices. It’s a set of 5 Community Practices that represent a commitment to engaging in more respectful dialogue and actively listening to understand others’ perspectives.

Working to build more compassionate and respectful communities for all of us – not just some of us.
