Happy first day of summer!

Jun 21, 2019

The summer of 2019 is here -- the beaches and the barbeques are heating up and for many, long-ago-planned vacations are now just around the corner.

But even with the summer sun shining bright, there is so much darkness filling the world, so many discouraging events taking over our news feeds. Bias, hate and discrimination don't take a holiday. That's why this season, and throughout the year, NCCJ stays focused on its work to make our communities better places for all of us -- not just some of us.
