DCJR News Flash!


We Are Glad to Be Back

All of you have been in our thoughts during this unusual moment in our history. The decision for the Dominican Center for Justice Resource (DCJR) to postpone all of the events that were scheduled as a part of the Opening Our Hearts and Minds to End Racism Series was hard. Along with many of you we made that decision to help keep our community safe. Many things have changed since we made that decision. The murder of George Floyd and the nations response has focused our awareness on the depth of the pain and anger connected to racism that is prevalent in our country.

Ruth Faden, Library of Congress Scholars Council Member noted that “we’ll never know if we would have had the same intensity of response to the murder of George Floyd if we were not in the midst of a pandemic...what we do know is that the cracks in our systems and structures were laid bare.” We commit ourselves to continuing to offer opportunities to explore and address racism in ourselves and in our community and pledge to keep those unacceptable disparities in the forefront of our decision making. 

Our offerings are planned to be virtual/online for September, October, and November.
When you register for an online event you will receive a link to join the training you have signed up for. If you have any questions please call 262 898-4094 or email
