New NCCJ Bulletin: Neurodiversity

Apr 11, 2019

Our latest NCCJ Bulletin is on the topic of Neurodiversity, which covers a multitude of neurological differences including but not limited to: Dyspraxia, Dyslexia, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Dyscalculia, Autistic Spectrum, Tourette Syndrome, and others.  Neurodiversity has become the go to word for a large part of the autistic community. It strays away from the medical model of diagnosis, which was created for the convenience of the abled rather than the support of people with disabilities.

After what seemed like the snow-filled winter that would never end, spring is finally here. Our resilience paid off and we've made it through those long, cold winter days and nights.

And resilience is something that we celebrate at NCCJ. With all that's going on in the world -- the disheartening events in today's news -- we need to gather all of the strength, skills and support that we can.  So today, let's take a moment to celebrate springtime together: enjoy the warmth, the flowers and the promise of sunnier days to come. 


New NCCJ Bulletin: Women's Rights

Mar 18, 2019

Our latest NCCJ Bulletin - to coincide with Women's History Month - is on the topic of Women’s Rights, the fundamental human rights that every person has when they’re born, and that cannot be taken away. They are no different than any other rights granted to any other group, but women and girls around the world are still being denied these natural rights because of their gender. The violation of these rights occurs at cultural, institutional, and individual levels. The goal of the Women’s Rights movement is to promote and achieve systematic and social equality of women to men.
