"The California Junior Classical League (CAJCL) seeks to promote a more thorough knowledge of Classical life, history, and literature; to impart a better understanding of the practical and cultural value of the Classics; to interest other students in the Classical languages, literature, government, laws, and arts; and, as members of this organization, to always strive to promote friendship and fellowship among students of the Classics."
JCL provides opportunities for members to compete in academics, arts, and athletics; as well as to develop leadership skills on the local level through their schools chapter, on the state level, and on the national level.
One of the activities CAJCL offered in the past was Rent-A-Roman. CAJCL recognized the resemblance of this activity to Roman slave auctions and we discontinued Rent-A-Roman several years ago. The California Junior Classical League condemns any action, reenactment, and/or activity that advocates or imitates slavery or any form of human rights violation. The California Junior Classical League is committed to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion across the organization.
