Description/Mission statement:
Just Communities Central Coast is a community-based nonprofit organization dedicated to the full vision of equity and inclusion, and we work to dismantle all forms of prejudice, discrimination, and oppression. Just Communities envisions a Central Coast where all people--inclusive of race, class, gender, religion, sexual orientation, and ability--are connected, respected, and valued.

Just Communities Central Coast was initially founded in 2001 as the National Conference for Community and Justice (NCCJ) of the California Central Coast region. In 2007, it separated from NCCJ and established itself in its current form. Just Communities Central Coast is also a founding member of the National Federation for Just Communities, a coalition of like-minded organizations working across the United States to bring the values of diversity, inclusion, and social justice to our communities, schools, workplaces, and institutions.
