The Diversity Center of Northeast Ohio is a human relations organization dedicated to eliminating bias, bigotry, and racism.
Founded in 1927 as the National Conference of Christians and Jews (NCCJ), The Diversity Center is currently a member
of the National Federation for Just Communities, a network of 20 like-minded organizations across the country.
Members of the Commission 50 are recognized annually for progress in creating, enhancing and sustaining their diversity and inclusion strategies. This recognition is based on their responses to the Commission on Economic Inclusion’s annual Employers Survey on Diversity™.
The Diversity Center urges all citizens in our community to honor Tamir Rice’s memory by continuing to work for tolerance and understanding as we, as a grieving community, move forward together. Our hearts break for the Rice family. From Cleveland to Ferguson, one thing is clear - there’s still much work to be done to bring us together as a nation that embraces mutual respect and diversity.

A teenage girl’s story unfolds to reveal the trauma and triumph she experiences when bullied and ostracized for her differences.
