• The Oklahoma Center for Community and Justice (“OCCJ”) was part of a national organization founded in 1927 as “The National Conference of Christians and Jews.” The National Conference of Christians and Jews eventually became the "National Conference for Community and Justice," before OCCJ evolved into an independent, nonprofit organization in Oklahoma.

  • OCCJ is dedicated to eliminating bias, bigotry, and racism in our state, in our generation, as well as increasing respect and understanding among all races, religions, and cultures through dialogue and education.

  • OCCJ is not a religious organization. It is a human relations organization.
