society is the kind of world
that it leaves to its children.”

should work to understand

can get there unless
everybody gets there.”

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.
Rooted in hope, four branches bear the fruit of our work: Holocaust and Human Rights Education, Social Justice, Jewish Studies, and Jewish Life.
At the Stan Greenspon Center for Peace and Social Justice at Queens University of Charlotte, our educational offerings are transformative. We exist to give voice to the voiceless, and form community partnerships to create positive change.
Greenspon advocates work tirelessly to pursue justice in order to create systemic change.
Exemplary Holocaust education advances human rights and democracy in an increasingly diverse America.
Working together to build transformative relationships across lines of difference.
Enabling thousands of years of Jewish texts, history and wisdom to speak to us and guide us today.
This year the Stan Greenspon Center celebrates five years of working for good in schools and the community. Jewish Life, Jewish Studies, Holocaust Education, and Social Justice are the areas of focus for our team, but we never work alone!
