FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 16, 2017, New York – The National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW) is proud to partner with JOIN for Justice on community organizing trainings — ROAR! Jewish Leadership Training for Resistance, Organizing, Action and Resilience. NCJW CEO Nancy K. Kaufman released the following statement:
“Our goal is to build power through numbers and engagement in local communities in order to advance social and economic justice for women, children, and families. We are particularly focused on voter education and turn-out in anticipation of the 2018 mid-term elections.
“The trainings explore campaign development and the cycle of campaigns that build power and have the greatest possible impact. Leaders learn how to work across lines of difference, how to find strength and resilience to fight for justice long-term, and how Jewish wisdom can guide, inspire, and ground us in this moment. This skills building training helps to channel the energy that people all over the country are feeling into tangible acts and campaigns that that make a difference.”
ROAR trainings will be offered around the country this month. To learn more, visit www.joinforjustice.org.
