For more than five and half decades, CCEJ has focused on raising awareness, building bridges, and overcoming conflict. Now more than ever, our communities feel divided.  Yet CCEJ continues to witness the joyful possibilities that exist when we commit ourselves to working together for unity, healing and justice.  We are hopeful for the future, and you can click here to read stories of our everyday victories – work that can only happen with the support of our community.

Our “Together We Can” campaign reflects our belief that we all have a role to play in building equity and justice:

  • Together, we can support people in our community as they seek mutual understanding and build bridges across differences.
  • Together, we can ensure our schools have healthy, strong and nurturing relationships that give young people the support they need to thrive.
  • Together, we can create communities where all people of different ethnicities, races, ages, sexual orientations, genders, and abilities are respected.

Help us reach our goal of $100,000 and click here to donate today! Any amount is meaningful.  Donors who contribute $500 or more will be recognized at our 56th Annual Humanitarian Awards Dinner on May 16, 2019.
