NCCJ (North Carolina for Community and Justice) is a human relations organization. Since 1937, we have served people and communities in North Carolina’s Piedmont Triad region. Learn about NCCJ’s history.
The land we occupy is the ancestral home of many Indigenous peoples, including the Eno, Keyauwee, Saura, and Sissipahaw. Today, North Carolina recognizes 8 tribes: Coharie, Lumbee, Meherrin, Occaneechi Saponi, Haliwa Saponi, Waccamaw Siouan, Sappony, and the Eastern Band of Cherokee. NCCJ honors and respects the Indigenous peoples connected to this territory on which we gather.

Partnership is everything.
We believe change starts with a conversation. When people respect and know how to communicate with others who are different from them, everyone benefits.
We partner with organizations across our community and our state. These partnerships allow us to collaborate with and deliver programs to diverse groups, sharing ideas and expertise to help move our community forward. Here are some of the businesses, community groups, and schools we’ve partnered with to deliver programs. We’ve also worked with houses of worship across the Triad. We’d love to partner with you, too!

In 1937, NCCJ was born out of the idea that open, respectful dialogue between people of different backgrounds builds stronger communities. We remain committed to that core ideal.
As the region’s oldest human relations organization, we have a long history here. Over the years, we’ve cultivated close relationships with people, companies, and organizations from many different parts of our community.
NCCJ has evolved to meet the challenges of each new era, expanding our focus to include issues of race, class, gender equity, sexual orientation, gender identity, and the rights of people with different abilities.
For more than 85 years, NCCJ has promoted understanding and respect among all people in the Piedmont Triad. We have strong ties to this community’s past and we are deeply invested in its future.
We’re an open book. Check out our financial statements and annual reports for a closer look at how we operate.
