JEWISH VOICES FOR AN INCLUSIVE GREENSBORO

 

The Jewish Community Relations Committee builds and maintains strong relationships with our city's diverse set of communities in service of a common vision: an equitable, just and inclusive Greensboro. We rise collectively and as individuals to stand against bigotry and discrimination, learn about injustices - past and present - so we can confront them, and champion justice and human rights in our city and all over the world. We learn. We educate. We advocate. And we mobilize.

JCRC MISSION STATEMENT

The Jewish Community Relations Committee’s core mission is to address historic and persistent injustices including all forms of systemic discrimination and oppression such as antisemitism, racism, and poverty primarily in Greensboro, but also in the United States, Israel and beyond.

  • Listening and Learning

  • Reflecting

  • Engaging in Informed Dialogue

  • Engaging Civically

  • Advocating and Taking Action
