Our History

The Multicultural Alliance traces its lineage to 1927 with the founding of the National Conference of Christians and Jews, an organization devoted to the elimination of bias, bigotry, and racism in the United States. In 1951, the Fort Worth, Texas chapter was created. This was during a time when much of NCCJ programming related to religious acceptance and tolerance. Human relations concerns continued to broaden and include other aspects of identity. In 1999, because of the changing demographics and focus on community, the national organization changed its name to the National Conference of Community in Justice. In 2006 the National NCCJ organization disbanded and requested that each local chapter form its own independent 501(c)3 status. With this separation, in 2007 the local board members made the decision to change the name of the organization to the Multicultural Alliance and continue the mission and purpose in the Tarrant County Community. Today, our mission is to promote inclusion, diversity and understanding and to work toward eliminating bias, bigotry and oppression in our community. We articulate our mission by bringing people together for shared experiences and educational opportunities.   NCCJ
