Founded in 1935, the Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities sought to address a rise in antisemitism, anti-Catholicism, and racism. Over the past eight-and-a-half decades, they’ve worked with schools, businesses and communities throughout the state to forge a cultural shift that’s more equitable, inclusive, and just.

Over the past five years, the Virginia Center has seen a 1300% increase in the demand for its services in the face of bias, bullying and discrimination. For this Hear Together profile, we spoke with President and CEO Jonathan Zur about recent trends and what we can do to bring our communities together.
