New Community Corporation was highlighted as a Community RedZone partner at the Oct. 6 Philadelphia Eagles versus New York Jets NFL football game at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia. The Eagles and Philadelphia Insurance highlight the work of charitable organizations within the community through the Community RedZone program. New Community was highlighted during the game with CEO Richard Rohrman going on to the field to accept the recognition. NCC staff members also handed out promotional items prior to the game to the football fans in attendance.
For more than 50 years, New Community Corporation has walked the walk of social justice, helping residents of inner cities improve the quality of their lives to reflect individual God-given dignity and personal achievement. After all, NCC was birthed from the literal ashes of the civil disorders of 1967 by a core group of Black community leaders and White allies, including a young priest named William Linder. Together, they modeled through word and deed the moral principle and reality that Black Lives Matter.
Today, just as in 1967, NCC joins in solidarity with all those who seek justice and an end to police brutality and racism.
