Year of Action Winter Shabbaton

Building on Year of Action’s Sunday workshops, we will continue to delve into how to use community organizing strategies to create systemic change and apply an anti-oppression lens to our work. Beginning the process of producing our own action plan for the spring, we will learn about two of JCUA’s social justice campaigns:

♦ “A Better Illinois,” a campaign for a graduated income tax in Illinois

♦ Campaign to ban guns in Illinois houses of worship

After hearing from our community partners on those campaigns, we will choose one to work with for the rest of Year of Action.
