Join us to make Anti-Racism a Verb ! Learn, Do, and Act.
We are committed to educating ourselves, strengthening our relationship with Black community partners, lifting up Black voices in our community, supporting Black businesses and artists, advocating for policy change and working side by side in communities.
We want you and your families to join us on this journey. On August 21, we launched our 18-week Racial Justice Challenge. Each Friday, until the end of 2020, we will be sending out a short reading, video, book recommendation, etc. This is an exercise that is designed to be challenging -some of the pieces we share will be provocative and controversial. They are presented as conversation starters. We invite you to lean into the discomfort of learning long enough to grow.
Through this journey, we will offer several virtual opportunities to discuss the challenges. In addition, we have created a private Facebook group where we will post each challenge with an opportunity to discuss and engage with other NCJW supporters. You can find the Facebook Group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/602463427350589.
We all know that our actions speak louder than words. As advocates, we will continue our policy work, informed by a heightened awareness of its racial justice implications. Policy work is where we can make real change to eliminate systemic racism. Watch for action alerts and commit to adding your voice.
