The National Conference for Community and Justice (NCCJ), founded in 1927 as National Conference of Christians and Jews, is a national non-profit organization in the United Statesmarker. Its mission is to fight bias, bigotry, and racism and promote understanding and respect through advocacy, conflict resolution, and education.

Transition

In 2005, NCCJ decentralized, asking all local offices to become independent 501c3 organizations. That shift led most offices to change their names. Some were forced to cease operations, and others merged.[110416]

Corporate Partners

NCCJ has effective networking skills which enable it to secure some partnerships with large corporations to help further its initiatives. Partners have included Aetna, ING, the MetLife Foundation, Federal Express, and Darden Restaurants.

Programs and Events

Anytown, a retreat program for high school students that allows participants to break barriers, deal with biased behavior, and develop strategies to reduce prejudice in their own school communities. Many similar programs (in name and content) emerged across the country, including Metrotown and Unitown.

Walk as One, a community walk-a-thon held in the fall, is currently NCCJ's biggest public event. Each walk-a-thon is held in a major urban area, and serves to advertise NCCJ's efforts to the community. Preceding, during, and following the walk-a-thon itself is a one to two hour open air gathering which involves area vendors, music performances, side entertainment and non-profits.

NCCJ once sponsored a week-long National Brotherhood Week, held generally during the third week of February from the 1940s through the 1980s.
