We Will Not Stop Now

Feb 22, 2017

“For 90 years NCCJ has fought against hate, bias and bigotry in all its forms…and we will not stop now. The challenges we face now require us to dig deeper and work harder to continue bending the moral arc of the universe toward justice and equality for all. I hope all people of good will, will join NCCJ in this work.”

We came from different pasts, but we all shared a single present.

In that present there were no walls to divide us. We were finally able to share our stories openly and safely. I heard stories about bullying, racism, classism, heterosexism, and everything in between. That night I vowed to never be a bystander again. 

Thanks to the NCCJ and its programs I will do my best to help educate myself, others, and hopefully my world.
