The Multicultural Alliance

Search for President

 

The mission of the Multicultural Alliance is to build inclusive communities through educational opportunities and bring folks together for shared experiences.

 

HISTORY:

The Multicultural Alliance traces its roots to the founding of the National Conference of Christians and Jews in 1927, and the Fort Worth chapter was created in 1951. In the late 1990s, the national and local organization’s name changed to the National Conference for Community and Justice to reflect the diversity of people in the United States and the commitment to creating just communities for all. In 2006 due to the national NCCJ disbanding, our name changed to the Multicultural Alliance. We broadened the mission and expanded our reach to include individuals of all identities. We achieve our mission through offering educational opportunities and shared experiences to program participants.  Our programs include an interfaith seminary retreat, interfaith dialogues, People’s Art Collaborative, Camp CommUNITY, Table Talk, and workshops and presentations. Staff, Board members, and volunteers frequently serve as consultants to a wide range of organizations and entities.

 

THE METROPLEX:

The Fort Worth/Dallas Metroplex is among the most diverse communities in the country and is characterized by a robust civil society representing individuals of multiple identities, including personal identities, religious affiliations, and racial and ethnic communities. This position plays a crucial role in articulating the pluralism of our community by promoting cooperation and understanding and celebrating the differences among the citizens. Collaborating closely with various communities, the President implements programs and initiatives that promote inclusivity and nurtures cooperation among people of different traditions and cultures.
