CJJ Action Hour: Now With Bagels
Join your fellow D/OC CJJniks for biweekly bagels and action hour!
We are excited to invite you to join us every other Sunday for a civic engagement-related action hour over bagels. We've seen some incredible challenges come at our community lately, and sometimes it's hard to see how anything we do to push back can have an effect. But as Jews, we have a tradition that values communal responsibility, and as organizers, we know that victories are often achieved by many small efforts adding up to something big.
Let's take some time this summer to do lots of little things that add up to something big. At each action hour, we'll spend a little time getting to know each other better over bagels, and then we'll work on an activity that helps us and our coalition partners to build power, especially when it comes to supporting the enfranchisement of communities of color.
This week we will write letters to the editor about Medicaid expansion and eat bagels.
Examples of future actions might include:
- Text or phone banking on behalf of the New North Carolina Project
- Writing postcards to voters of color on behalf of the North Carolina League of Conservation Voters Foundation
- Strategizing about how to build relationships with local synagogues and other Jewish organizations
- Planning events for CJJ to co-host with partner orgs, like virtual or in-person town halls with local electeds, or party-to-the-poll events, or canned food drives.
RSVP to see the location of this event!
Eat bagels, grow closer to your CJJ comrades, and help us to build power to protect and support ourselves and those we love!
