  • Description

    Jewish tradition, values, and history call on the Jewish American community to protect the vulnerable, fight oppression, and work to ensure that all people have the opportunity to live with dignity and respect. Jewish grassroots organizations across the country are answering this call by working at the local and state levels to address the social injustices of our day. Now, a new initiative called the Collaborative for Jewish Organizing (the Collaborative), will bring these groups together along with the staffs of two national organizations (and RPF grantees): the Religious Action Center and Bend the Arc. Together, these leaders—who are working in places like Detroit, Maryland, and North Carolina—will share best practices, address shared challenges, and create the deep, inter-group connections effective long-term movement building requires.
