    March with CJJ at HKonJ!

    HKonJ (Historic Thousands on Jones St) is a movement of more than 200 partnering organizations who will be gathering by the thousands in downtown Raleigh on Saturday, February 8, to advocate for the 14-Point People's Agenda, a comprehensive progressive platform developed under the leadership of the NAACP. Please RSVP for additional information about carpools and forthcoming details about our traditional pre-march Shabbat service.

    Carolina Jews for Justice (CJJ) recognizes and respects the many ways members of our community observe Shabbat. We also acknowledge that when working in coalition with our non-Jewish partners, there will occasionally be events falling during the hours of Shabbat which might present a challenge and choice for our members. We fully support individuals who decide to participate or not participate at this event due to their own level of observance or comfort.

    Durham Friends Meeting in Durham, NC

    ICE Verifier Training

    Our ancestors are calling out, Never Again Is Now. In the wake of the Never Again Alamance action this past November, here is the next step of our plan to continue to defend our immigrant neighbors from ICE and the rest of the deportation & incarceration machine.

    In the face of growing threats to immigrant communities, CJJ and Never Again are working with Siembra NC and Siembra's undocumented leadership teams to train a network of allies throughout the Triangle who are prepared to act as first responders to local ICE activity. Once trained, participants become a part of Siembra NC's rapid response network in Central NC, which promotes greater safety for our immigrant neighbors. We invite people with driver's licenses who want to participate in Durham-area ICE Watch to attend. (If you don't live in Durham, you're still very welcome to attend! We are hoping to expand our coverage over time to as many places as possible.)

    This is the second of a series of three identical trainings being offered between January-March.

We'll spend some time talking about what CJJ is doing at the statewide and local level, and then dig into ways for folks to get involved (spoiler: there are LOTS of opportunities!). Please come, and bring your friends! (And if you're able, bring a snack to share, too!)

    Pursuing Justice 2020 with Bend the Arc

    Pursuing Justice 2020 is the largest national gathering of progressive Jews working for social, racial, and economic justice in the U.S. The conference will bring together over 1,000 activists and organizers for three days of learning, connecting, and taking action. If you are ready to be part of a powerful community informed by the long Jewish legacy of pursuing racial and economic justice, we want you to join us. 

    CJJ is proud to be a participating organization, and we're excited to have a strong North Carolina contingent in DC with us! Please connect with cole@carolinajewsforjustice.org if you're interested in attending (they have a special registration code for CJJ folks, and will be coordinating carpools and shared housing options closer to the event).
