Imagine if we leveraged the collective strength of our people — all our people. NCCJ is dedicated to fighting bias, bigotry and racism in all their forms. We work year-round with students, educators, and companies in Guilford County and across the state of North Carolina. We can help you approach difficult topics from a place of curiosity and connect 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!
Curious about ANYTOWN? The short answer is, yes – COVID-19 will affect ANYTOWN 2021. For the long answer, see our COVID-19 FAQs page:
In August 2020, NCCJ partnered with the YMCA of Greensboro to launch a new community initiative called The 8:46 Series to educate and equip the community with a foundational understanding of the issue of systemic racism. The first phase of this initiative reached more than 900 community and business leaders. (Click here to learn more about The 8:46 Series.)
In January 2021, we launched the second phase – a new, free webinar series throughout 2021 for those who wish to cultivate a more racially inclusive environment at their workplaces. Check out the first offering in this series, a 90-minute panel discussion exploring diverse racial equity journeys, personal growth strategies, vulnerabilities and ways to work together:

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.
