Testimonial: Matt & Nate

Dec 18, 2017

When we are born, we innately value justice and fairness. Prejudice, however, is learned and no one is immune. So how do we fight discrimination, bias and bigotry? How do we build communities that are inclusive and just for all? For 90 years the National Conference for Community and Justice has been answering these questions. This is the story of breaking bias—one unlikely friendship at a time. What can be learned can be unlearned.
