Announcing Our New Name

After 140 years of operation using some form of National Crittenton as our “doing business as” (DBA) name, we are changing it to the Justice and Joy National Collaborative. We are making this change as a statement of our current and future values, identity, and our role within the ecosystem of organizations advancing gender and racial/ethnic justice with and for girls and gender-expansive young people of color, particularly those who are or have been system involved, and/or have faced chronic adversity.

Through January 2024, we will be making changes to our website. Be sure to sign up for our newsletter for more updates.

Our mission is to achieve social, economic, and political justice with, and for girls, young women, and gender-expansive young people of color*

*We recognize that gender and how we claim our identities is evolving across the spectrum.

We are an intergenerational, multi-racial, multi-ethnic, national gender justice advocacy organization 

by centering those most impacted to eradicate all forms of oppression

to support and sustain the momentum built by cis, and trans girls, young women, and gender-expansive young people

to address significant gaps in data about girls, young women, and gender-expansive young people of color* because we will not be invisible
