image002Our Work

CCEJ’s work focuses on a broad range of “isms” – the manifestations of discrimination and oppression based on religion, race, gender, age, ability, gender identity, and sexual orientation – ranging from bias-related crimes and violence to racial profiling to systemic oppression. To confront and overcome these challenges, CCEJ maintains an abiding commitment to work with decision-makers and leaders to support their work in building a more inclusive and safe society.

CCEJ’s critical youth programs give young people a safe place to learn and engage in dialogue about culture, communication and conflict. CCEJ’s programs give students a place to belong where they are valued and listened to, skills they need to lead and succeed, and the courage to share those skills with others. One recent CCEJ graduate aptly explained that CCEJ teaches students that “a conversation resolves a conflict better than a gun.”

CCEJ brings diverse people together through honest conversations and programs that educate and improve human relations in our schools, workplaces, businesses, among faith groups and in our communities. Reaching people where they live, CCEJ is helping to build safe communities that more fully include all people.

Our History

The National Conference of Christians and Jews (NCCJ) was founded in 1927. In 1990, the name was changed to the National Conference for Community and Justice. The Long Beach region was founded in 1963 and by 2005, the Los Angeles, Orange County and San Diego regions merged to form the California Conference for Equality and Justice, an independent 501(c)(3)organization serving all of Southern California.
