Stan Greenspon Center for Peace and Social Justice
Finding Common Ground for Moving Forward
In 2013, an initiative began to explore the possibility of a Holocaust and multicultural teacher education center in Charlotte. That led to the establishment of the Stan Greenspon Center at Queens University of Charlotte in 2015, funded by Stan Greenspon and led by Rabbi Judy Schindler.
The center's mission is to create bridges of multicultural understanding and collaboration that support human rights through education, advocacy, and action at Queens University and beyond.
Social Justice and Advocacy
The Stan Greenspon Center works with the Charlotte and Queens communities to support individuals as they move from volunteerism to advocacy to creating change. For example, the center's Refugee Advocacy Network is committed to working at the local, state, and national levels to create meaningful change in order to "welcome the stranger" as directed in all faith traditions.
Holocaust and Human Rights Education
The Stan Greenspon Center for Peace and Social Justice serves as an educational resource to regional students, teachers, professors and community members, providing physical and online resources with the most up-to-date curricular and research materials.
