What Is CRJC?

The Charlotte Racial Justice Consortium (CRJC) is a partnership between Johnson C. Smith University, UNC Charlotte, Queens University, Johnson and Wales - Charlotte Campus and Central Piedmont Community College, supported by the Consortium's selection as a Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation (TRHT) Campus Center by the Association of American Colleges & Universities (AAC&U). Our vision is a Charlotte community that understands its history of race and racism, believes in our shared humanity, embraces a more comprehensive narrative on race, and develops faculty, staff, and student leaders who work across our campuses towards truth, racial healing, and transformation.

The CJRC has five main goals:

  • Understand, recognize, and work towards healing the separation in Charlotte’s segregated past and present.
  • Embrace a more comprehensive narrative on race.
  • Build respectful and trusting relationships among diverse members of our university and Charlotte communities.
  • Develop student, staff, and faculty leaders who facilitate truth-telling, racial healing, and transformation.
  • Transform the language and culture of race and racism on our campuses and in the Charlotte community.
