Gun violence is continuously harming Chicago communities, and disproportionately harming people of color and women. Unfortunately, in June of 2013, the Illinois General Assembly passed an overly permissive law that allows citizens to carry concealed weapons with few limitations.
It’s time for the Jewish community to step up in the fight against gun violence. And we need your help.
JCUA is joining a coalition of diverse communities in a campaign to begin taking back gun legislation in Illinois.
This campaign’s goal: to ban guns in houses of worship.
It won’t be easy, which is why we need YOUR help. JCUA is holding a first meeting for people who may be interested in stepping up in this campaign and being leaders.
Together we can build a Jewish response to gun violence, and be strong partners for our allies throughout Chicago. But it won’t happen without people like you, who are willing to step up. I hope to see you on November 19.
JCUA Director of Operations
