Yachad Link20 Advocacy Group

Link20 is a partnership with the Ruderman Family Foundation and is an exciting opportunity for Jewish young adults interested in disability advocacy to become leaders in the field. Our Link20 cohort will be a small group (8-10 people) meeting weekly for 10-12 weeks. This leadership group will work together to identify real-life issues and develop an advocacy project with the goal of making social change. Over the course of the sessions, group members will enhance their leadership and advocacy skills as they learn from fellow activists and relevant speakers. The project and its implementation will have a major social media component. Participants will be Link20 ambassadors to the Boston community, promoting inclusion and awareness to their networks. Our cohort will join the international Link20 network, which will offer connections to other people passionate about inclusion-related advocacy.
