The Somerset County Cultural Diversity Coalition, (SCCDC) founded in 1995, is a human relations organization dedicated to fighting bias, prejudice and bigotry in our county. We promote this ideal through community roundtables, festivals, publications, speaker’s bureau, and the Resource Directory. Somerset County Diversity Coalition acts as a catalyst for individuals, corporations, and community, non-profit, government and educational organizations by providing networking, referral services, educational activities, and promoting the value of diversity.
The vision of the organization is "to foster greater awareness, understanding, and respect for all differences in the community". The organization inspires, motivates and engage youth to understand our changing communities and solve conflicts peacefully.
