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.

  • Engaging Civically

  • Advocating and Taking Action
