We are facing a unique historical moment. Many Jews across the country feel that their core values are under assault, or feel directly at risk, and want to take action. Whatever we do must be able to be sustained, must build power as opposed to drain us, and have an impact whenever possible. But how? How do we make a difference, not just a statement? How do we channel the energy to act in this moment toward developing campaigns that make real change? How do we stand for civil society by working with other communities rather than reinforcing the barriers that so often exist?
JOIN for Justice is excited to announce we are launching a new initiative this spring, ROAR! Resistance, Organizing, Action, and Resilience. This initiative will host trainings across the country so we in the Jewish community can take effective and impactful action. Through the wisdom of community organizing, our ROAR training will explore campaign development and the cycle of campaigns that progress, step by step, to build power and have the greatest possible impact. We will explore how to work across lines of difference, how to find strength and resilience to allow us to work for justice long-term, and how Jewish wisdom can guide us and ground us in this moment.
This is a great opportunity for those both new and more experienced in social justice work to come together to participate in community organizing training, and plan for how you want to take action in the coming years.+ More... - Less...
