Keeping with the Jesuit tradition a commitment to social justice is an essential dimension of all our programming. Whether it is the work with refugees, environmental work, work in sustainable development or interfaith, political and economic equity is foundational. An emerging area of work for the Center is neighborhood economic development. Examples of this work are:
- The Cincinnati Regional Coalition Against Hate - The Cincinnati Regional Coalition Against Hate (CRCAH) is a nonpartisan alliance of organizations committed to being vigilant against hate activity by supporting impacted communities and fostering acceptance, compassion, and justice for all in the Cincinnati region.
- The Economics of Compassion and Jubilee Project- working to help the under-served and distressed neighborhoods in Cincinnati
- Neighborhood Grow - An innovative project that helps communities develop their identity as a foundation for their economic development.
- It's Commonly Jazz - This musical gathering every Thursday in August also connects diverse audiences to "Community Difference Makers" - the Brueggeman Center was honored in 2018.
