This year our regional leaders have really stepped up our social justice game. Some of the topics we’ve covered this year include:

Summer Kallah

  • Racial Injustice
  • Finding our Strengths

Kolbo

  • The Importance of Interfaith Partnership
  • Mass Incarceration
  • Inclusion

How can we continue to take action?

  1. Call your representatives! Show that you care and say what you care about!
  2. To participate in interfaith work get involved with Children of Abraham Coalition
    1. Be a leader at Children of Abraham’s Peace Camp this summer
    2. Join an interfaith choir, The 100, this summer
  3. Volunteer for Keshet, an organization dedicated to working with Jewish people with special needs

  5. Learn what it takes to successfully organize a group of passionate individuals through these tips for community organizing
  6. Be Vocal about mental health awareness
  7. Understand your implicit biases to fight racial injustice
  8. Write and lead a program in the next year about something that matters to you. What keeps you up at night? What change do you want to make in the world? Share it with our NFTY community.

…and so much more! There are so many resources available online to help you stand up for the things you care about! Most importantly… Keep learning about these issues and get to work!
