that it leaves to its children.”

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.
Five years ago this winter, we began our work building the Stan Greenspon Center for Peace and Social Justice. As we enter this semester, we reflect and celebrate our journey.
To commemorate our fifth anniversary, we will host a virtual celebration on Sunday, March 21, 2021, at 5 pm. The evening will be a reflection on our journey. The highlight of the event is the world premiere of the film I Danced for the Angel of Death, the Dr. Edith Eva Eger Story.
