Here we see several NCCJ members at Beth David Synagogue facilitating an interfaith tour earlier this year. Established in 1927 as the National Conference for Christians and Jews, the organization was founded in response to the anti-Catholic sentiment in the United States. In the 1990's the NCCJ expanded their mission and updated their name to the National Conference for Community and Justice. The group is dedicated to bringing diverse people together to address interfaith and social issues for ninety years now. NCCJ aspires to build a community free of bias, bigotry, and racism. Greensboro is lucky to have the organization based here and North Carolina is lucky to be home to NCCJ's "Anytown" summer camps.
NCCJ has so much planned for this spring and summer and today, they will have a big fundraiser at the Chipotle Restaurant at 1402 Westover Terrace (across from Lucky 32). If you eat there between the hours of 4-8pm and mention NCCJ, Chipotle will donate 50% of the proceeds back to NCCJ. That arrangement has the potential to be significant. If you want to help teach people to learn to get along regardless of background and beliefs, eat at Chipotle in Midtown and mention NCCJ. Learning to work together is a skill where we adults have room for growth, too. May NCCJ continue to do its fine work for many years to come.
