About Us

The New Orleans Council for Community and Justice (NOCCJ), founded as The National Conference of Christians and Jews, is a human relations organization dedicated to promoting equality & fighting disparity in the Greater New Orleans area. Daily, we open minds and bring people together by promoting understanding & respect among all races, religions and cultures through advocacy, education and our initiatives.




NOCCJ’s work moves people along a social change continuum from individual empowerment towards personal & collective action. We provide leaders with the skills and values to oppose discrimination and open minds – their own and others! NOCCJ’s programs focus on education, advocacy, conflict resolution, leadership development and training the ext generation to become more effective change agents in their communities.

We have been faithfully serving the Greater New Orleans area since 1943 through advocacy and educational services, including our annual Weiss Humanitarian Awards Dinner, which for the past 70 years has continued to honor community leaders and activists who promote the values of diversity & humanity.

In the past decade, NOCCJ has increased its programming to include cultural diversity workshops, bias awareness training, health & wellness resources & education, along with many other much-needed initiatives for the community, such as Camp Anytown, the Great Health Race and NOLA United.
