Description

The Diversity Center of Northeast Ohio has been dedicated to eliminating bias, bigotry, and racism since 1927. Our goal is to make Northeast Ohio a just, diverse, and inclusive community, a place where ALL people are connected, respected, and valued. 

Proceeds from Walk, Rock and Run will enable us to empower more than 14,000 youth and educators in 11 counties during the 2021-2022 academic year. The need for our work has never been greater – and the moment to support us is NOW. Help us reach more children BEFORE they learn to hate.
