    Action Hour with CJJ-W Democracy Rights #1

    Are you ready to take action to support democracy?  Come to one of two Action Hours that have been created to address:

    • The drawing of fair maps in 2021 in North Carolina 
    • Getting federal legislation passed to promote voter access and fairness. 

    While it is important to vote, it is important that we have fair maps so that our votes count. You will learn about the once-in-a-decade process of accounting for state-level population changes in North Carolina to draw new district maps from the federal level to the local level. It impacts how funding is distributed for healthcare, schools, and roads. 

    We will share ways to take action and spend some time doing the work during out first Action Hour on Sunday, September 19th at 3 pm. RSVP below to receive the Zoom link.

    Sukkot & Housing: Our Friends Can’t Afford to Be Our Neighbors

    Our friends at Temple Beth Or in Raleigh are sponsoring the following event connecting the celebration of Sukkot with ONE Wake's Affordable Housing Initiatives:

    Sukkot & Housing: Our Friends Can’t Afford to Be Our Neighbors

    Wed, Sept. 22 from 7:30-8:30pm

    Register HERE!


    ONE Wake has two initiatives we will learn more about:

    1. Property Valuations and Taxes are Skyrocketing in Southeast Raleigh and Across Wake County This summer more than 100 Raleigh homeowners met through ONE Wake and have identified rising property taxes as a major pressure facing their household. Long time, low income homeowners are being displaced by rising property taxes in gentrifying neighborhoods. This is disproportionately impacting African American households.
    2. Increase Affordable Housing in Cary Most people who live, work or worship in Cary know the cost of housing is rising rapidly. Increasingly people who work in Cary providing needed services and our low income neighbors can’t afford to live in town. Our community benefits from a range of housing choices for all.

    March with CJJ-West at Asheville Pride!

    Unfortunately, this event has been cancelled by the organizers because of concerns for community health and public safety.

    Join the CJJ-West contingent marching in Asheville's annual Pride Parade on Saturday, Sept. 25*! The walk is a half mile long, beginning in Pack Square and processing into the heart of the festival. We will gather in the parking lot across from 23 Grove Street — look for the CJJ banner, and wear your own CJJ shirt if you have one! (If you don't have one but would like one, please email [email protected] with your preferred size and we'll do our best to accommodate!)

    All participants should wear masks and follow social distancing guidelines. If you have had a known exposure to COVID or do not feel well, please do not attend. We will update all registrants with any additional COVID safety recommendations as the event draws nearer.

    *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.

    CJJ-D/OC Racial Justice Study Group: Environmental Justice Teach-In

    Environmental racism is a concept in the environmental justice movement, which developed in the United States throughout the 1970s and 1980s. The term is used to describe environmental injustice that occurs within a racialized context both in practice and policyThe goal of this session is to provide some internal education on the history and foundations of the fight for environmental justice. We will have the fortune of learning from Tatiana (Tots) Height (she/they), a native of Chicago, IL who has made NC home for almost 4 years. They hold a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a major in Great Plains Studies and minors in Environmental Studies, Agribusiness Entrepreneurship, and Community Regional Planning. As a part of the Great Plains Studies Program, they pursued two emphasis areas in Land & Environment and Culture & Community. Later, they received a Master of Community & Regional Planning degree while also working full-time as an Integrated Water Management Planner for the State of Nebraska. Currently they are a doctoral candidate in the Agricultural and Extension Education program at NC State University, a full time conservation professional, and a part time environmental ethics professor.
