Finding common ground
for moving forward.

“The ultimate test of a moral
society is the kind of world
that it leaves to its children.”
– Dietrich Bonhoeffer

We who have been
culturally misunderstood
should work to understand
other’s cultures.
– Rabbi Judy Schindler

“Who is wise?” the Jewish
sages teach, “The one
who learns from all people.”

Rooted in our common humanity, drawing on lessons of the past, and reaching upward through education and advocacy are at the heart of the mission of the Stan Greenspon Center.

The Stan Greenspon Center for Peace and Social Justice is Where Hope Takes Hold

History shows that courage in the face of darkness saves lives and shifts outcomes. Courage rooted in hope.

In every instance where people have had to overcome unspeakable acts of violence, discrimination, and persecution, hope has lead the way. Hope for peace, for love, and for equality.

We are the Stan Greenspon Center for Peace and Social Justice, and we exist to give voice to the voiceless, and form community partnerships to create positive change. We draw on history to guide our way as we advocate for those who need a spark of hope to lead them out of despair.
