NSCC Forums on Tolerance Support a Learning Environment
NSCC Forums teach tolerance, embrace diversity and support a learning environment.
NSCC Forums on Tolerance initiate educational challenges to students and members of the community to learn more about one another, bring about empathy and understanding toward other people, and to make a difference in ourselves, our neighborhoods, and our world. Since 1996, NSCC Forums have explored social injustice and its effects on the modern world and our own communities through topics ranging from the Holocaust to immigration and civil rights.

A Two-Day, Two-Campus Event
According the ACLU, the U.S. has 5% of the world’s population, but 25% of the world’s prison population. Those who have paid their debt to society often find themselves stigmatized by having a criminal record. Many of these citizens have been convicted of crimes as a result of the criminalization of addiction in our society. This forum focuses on understanding and healing for those reentering the community after a conviction, the community that accepts them, and the criminal justice system as a whole.
