|Our Vision: To make our nation a better place for all of us. Not just some of us. Our Strategic Screen: To transform communities to provide fuller opportunity and to be inclusive and just – through institutional change – by empowering leaders.NCCJ’s programming facilitates community and interfaith dialogues, provides workplace consultations, youth leadership development, seminarian and educator training. Its nationally recognized research provides data and analysis to the evolving study of intergroup relations; and, its public policy works with government leaders and advocates policies that reflect understanding and respect. Our Guiding Beliefs and Principles: We are not a neutral party in this work. Our role is to advocate, educate and resolve conflict – relative to issues of discrimination and oppression of individuals and groups. In order to promote understanding and respect across groups we must acknowledge the dynamics of power and privilege and the role they play in creating attitudes, behavior, and practices that support systems of exclusion and oppression. All members of society at some time may feel the impact of systemic oppression, either overt or covert, intentional or unintentional, conscious or unconscious. In order to fulfill our organizational mission, our program efforts must be connected to creating inclusive, respectful and just communities.
