Share our Vision

Mannie Jackson

"I have faced many societal challenges during my life. The formation of this center resulted in programs that give people a better understanding of societal differences and how we should embrace those differences. Without that understanding, people throughout the world will continue to have conflicts with other cultures."

- Mannie Jackson, Donor and President of the MJCHF

Now is the time to make our mark on society as a whole, and move humanity in the direction of acceptance and understanding, rather than fear and conflict. Join those who have pledged their support thus far in making our vision a reality. 

With gratitude we acknowledge those who are making Mannie Jackson’s vision a reality. This legacy will inspire and educate for generations to come.
