The JNC’s mission is to foster the healing for our nation, seeking to reverse the curse of hatred and poverty, guided by love.
In was August 28, 1963, almost six decades ago, when Dr. Virgil Wood was given the privilege of serving as State Wide Coordinator for the historic March on Washington. The Lynchburg chapter of SCLC had the capacity to make it happen, and its team members carried it out magnificently, with some working shoulder to shoulder in the trenches.
But on that day, August 28, 1963, our 14-year-old youth leader of the local SCLC efforts, C. Cardwell, Jr., participated with his father at the March, O. C. Cardwell, Sr., a leader of the SCLC chapter. Almost 60 years later, that youth leader, Dr. O. C. Cardwell, Jr., is founder with Dr. Virgil A. Wood, of the Jubilee National Collaborative (JNC).
The JNC’s mission is to foster the healing for our nation, seeking to reverse the curse of hatred and poverty, guided by love. It aims to achieve its mission through focused attention to one community at a time, providing training and development which can help citizens thrive and become self-sufficient. With an appreciation for God’s gift of free-choice to humankind and an understanding that there is a fine-line dividing right and wrong actions, the JNC seeks to eliminate blame and cultivate an atmosphere where good is supported and considered normal. It seeks to reach and build up despondent citizens and instill the truth of their ability to change their circumstances for the betterment of the entire community.
