The National Federation for Just Communities a Michigan-based organization dedicated to overcoming racism, bias, and discrimination by building understanding, respect and trust through education, advocacy and community involvement.


The National Federation for Just Communities ("NFJC") is a coalition of like-minded non-profit organizations working across America to bring the values of diversity, inclusion, and social justice to our schools, workplaces, and communities.[1] Their vision is "the reality of inclusion and justice for all [in] every community."


NFJC was created in 2006 by a number of organizations that were formerly regional offices of the National Conference for Community and Justice,[2] which was founded in 1927 as the National Conference of Christians and Jews. The NFJC founders were Dan Krichbaum, Diane Schwartz, Jarrod Schwartz, and Ruth Shepherd.

Today, members meet annually at a conference hosted by one of NFJC's affiliate offices, and also stay connected through sharing calls, a mentoring program, and other special initiatives.
