Opening Minds: The Washington Region for Justice & Inclusion
Opening Minds: The Washington Region for Justice & Inclusion (WRJI) is a nonprofit organization committed to upholding the values of equality, understanding, and respect for all people. Through the use of training sessions, collaboration, and conflict mediation, we fight oppression, prejudice, and discrimination in the Washington metro area (Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia). Youth Building Bridges, our youth program, brings together teens, educators, community organizations, volunteers, and parents to identify and resolve issues caused by isolation and prejudice in schools and neighborhoods. The roots of our organization in the national capital area date back to 1938, when the organization was part of the National Conference of Christians and Jews (NCCJ).
