“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.”

“Cooperation is the thorough
conviction that nobody
can get there unless
everybody gets there.”
- Virginia Burden

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

 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.

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.

Our Branches

 

Social Justice & Advocacy

Greenspon advocates work tirelessly to pursue justice in order to create systemic change.

Jewish Life & Multi-cultural Connections

Working together to build transformative relationships across lines of difference.


Jewish Studies

Enabling thousands of years of Jewish texts, history and wisdom to speak to us and guide us today.
