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 HateThe 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 working to help the under-served and distressed neighborhoods in Cincinnati 
  • The Jubilee Project2019 is the 400th anniversary of the first slaves arriving in America. In recognition of this, we are launching a Jubilee Campaign. Jubilee is an economic movement for all Cincinnatians starting with African Americans, other people of color and poor white people.  We believe that what happens to the most marginalized people in our communities affects all of us.
