Join us in celebration and gratitude! December 3rd is #GivingTuesday, the antidote to Black Friday and Cyber Monday and a global giving movement to support the causes you love…
The Inclusion Center for Community and Justice has been changing the world by building and supporting inclusive communities in Utah since 1967. A deeply concerning trend of intolerance, bullying, and hate crimes shows that the need is greater than ever for an organization with the capacity to bring people together. As a human relations organization dedicated to overcoming hatred, bias, and exclusionary practices, the ICCJ works to make our communities better for all of us. Our vision is a society that celebrates diversity, promotes inclusion, dismantles stereotypes, strives for social justice, cultivates young leaders, and develops their mentors.
One of our projects, Camp Anytown, is an annual leadership and diversity training program for teens. Anytown cultivates inclusive communities through intentional dialogue and experiential learning. Here, student delegates learn how to reduce prejudice, build community, and become the leaders of tomorrow. Camp Anytown alumni frequently gather to share the ways in which their experiences at Anytown changed their lives. Many go on to volunteer with the Inclusion Center or to be involved in other ways in the nonprofit sector, social justice work, and improving their communities, but all of them tell us that they wouldn’t be who they are today without Anytown. As we say, “Anytown is not just a camp; it’s a way of life!”
This #GivingTuesday, you have the opportunity to effect change by supporting this one-of-a-kind, social-justice-centered educational experience. The impact of Camp Anytown on its student delegates is immeasurable, and its effects last a lifetime. Making a difference, helping others, self-discovery, advocacy, and community: these are just a few of the principles alumni take away from their time with us. Our goal this year is a fully-funded Anytown experience for every student delegate, so that no one need be turned away because of financial hardship. Help us reach our goal of a fully-funded Anytown 2020 on #GivingTuesday!
We are grateful for all of your contributions – your time, items, services, and financial donations – to our mission! We couldn't do this without you.
Please share this campaign with your friends! Let them know about the important work our organization is doing, and increase the impact we can make together.
