Make sure our communities are just and inclusive for everyone.
“GO INSIDE YOU MEXICAN!”
Those four words have been repeated to one of our youth over the years as he grew into a young man in Connecticut.
Imagine how you would feel if a neighbor yelled those hurtful words to you as you played outside as a child. Would you feel unwelcome in your neighborhood? Would you hesitate to play outside for fear of being yelled at again? Would this diminish your confidence as you entered school, college or even started a new job?
Hundreds of youth in our communities experience this kind of bigotry every day. Thousands are affected throughout our country. Both youth and adults alike experience the growing torment of hate on a regular basis. You only need to turn on the news to see numerous examples of how hate hurts individuals, schools, religious institutions and businesses.
WE NEED YOUR HELP to end this bigotry and hate in our communities. Your donations ensure a better tomorrow for youth and help them to overcome the prejudice they may face.
A welcoming and fair community means that everyone, regardless of their differences, has the same opportunities for success. Join in the fight to make sure our communities are just and inclusive for everyone.
Make a difference in your community today when you give to NCCJ. Your gift helps us to continue educating our neighbors on ways to look past difference to create a more welcoming society.
Find the power to change our world by starting with where you live.
That young man who experienced those hurtful words is now a strong, confident and courageous member of our community. His is just one of the many that have had their lives transformed because of supporters like you.
