Organizational Overview:

NCCJ of the Piedmont Triad is a human relations organization that promotes understanding and respect among all cultures, races, and religions through advocacy, education, and dialogue. We do not advocate for any particular group, but works to build mutual respect among all people—regardless of race, culture, sexual orientation, gender, socioeconomic background, or faith. To fulfill our mission, NCCJ initiatives must create inclusive, respectful, and just communities. Areas of activity include: 

1)      Ongoing education (students and teachers), workplace, and community programs

2)      Its flagship ANYTOWN program and associated residential summer programs, year-round series, and ambassador program

3)      Targeted advocacy and communication campaigns aimed at eliminating bias, bigotry, and racism

Milestones:

NCCJ of the Piedmont Triad was founded in 1937 as the “Greensboro Chapter” of a national nonprofit. We became an independent 501(c)(3) in 2005, localizing our program, development, and communication activities. We were honored to be named as Nonprofit of the Year in 2011 by the Guilford Nonprofit Consortium and listed as a top-rated nonprofit in 2012 and 2013 by Great Nonprofits. NCCJ is increasingly recognized as a thought leader and convener in the human relations sector. Last year, we hosted our most financially successful fundraiser, the annual Citation Award Dinner, raising over $445,000 to support our important work. This year, 2017, marks the organization’s 80th anniversary as well as the 30th anniversary of our flagship youth program, ANYTOWN.
