*Scroll down to learn about and RSVP for upcoming CJJ events!*

As part of our commitment to creating a more just, fair, and compassionate North Carolina, we are dedicated to making CJJ events accessible and welcoming to all participants! These are some of the practices we employ to support this effort:

  • Live Captioning — Live captioning is available for all participants, which can be activated by clicking the CC button in the bottom of your screen. Participants can hide/show the captions and adjust their size in the settings button found in the caret to the left of the CC button. 
  • Visual Descriptions — The first time a person speaks, we invite them to provide a brief visual description of themself to enable full engagement from people who can’t see. Note: Descriptive accuracy is not a goal here. Please describe yourself as you want others to see you and with whatever information you want others to know about you.
  • Pace — We ask that all speakers speak slowly and that in our conversations we minimize crosstalk (i.e. not interrupting or talking over each other). Similarly, we encourage participants to use the chat feature lightly, as a tool to enhance or resonate with what is being shared.

If there are other things we can do to further support your participation, please email [email protected], and we will connect with you directly.

Please also take a moment to familiarize yourself with our Community Norms & Expectations (available here) in advance of any CJJ event. CJJ seeks to create a culture that models the just and liberated world we’re fighting for and minimizes the replication of oppressive systems, structures, behaviors, and dynamics. These guidelines aim to support us in enacting these values.

Finally, most CJJ events continue to happen virtually so as to support our individual and collective health and safety. For in-person events, please review our new in-person event guidelines before attending.

    CJJ-West Chapter Meeting

    Join us for our first in-person chapter meeting since 2020. We're focusing on reparations!

    Our guest speaker, Marsha Davis, Executive Director of the Tzedek Social Justice Fund, will share the United Nations' and the Movement 4 Black Lives' reparations frameworks in discussing how Asheville's local reparations movement fits into the national reparations conversation. Deborah Miles, Tzedek board member, CJJ member, and founder and former Executive Director of the UNC Asheville Center for Diversity Education, will further the reparations discourse by briefly exploring the Jewish perspective. We'll have time for questions and answers and some schmoozing too! 

    Whether you're brand new to CJJ or have been around since the beginning, you are welcome! 
    Since this is an in-person event, feel free to look at our recently updated CJJ COVID guidelines.

    Poor People's and Low Wage Worker's Assembly

    Join the Poor People's Campaign in Washington, DC, on June 18, 2022 for a mass Poor People’s & Low-Wage Workers’ Assembly & Moral March. Click here for more information, including how to reserve a seat on a bus traveling to DC! (Busses will be traveling from Asheville, Chapel Hill, Charlotte, Durham, Fayetteville, Goldsboro, Greensboro, Greenville, Jackson, Pittsboro, Raleigh, Salisbury, Sanford, Siler City, Wilmington, and Winston-Salem.)

    We assemble and march on June 18, 2022 because any nation that ignores nearly half of its citizens is in a moral, economic and political crisis. There were 140 million people who were poor or one emergency away from economic ruin before the pandemic. Since March 2020, billionaire wealth has grown by over $2 trillion while hundreds of thousands of people have died, millions are on the edge of hunger and eviction, and still without health care or living wages. 

    The Mass Poor People’s & Low-Wage Workers’ Assembly & Moral March on Washington on June 18, 2022 will be a generationally-transformative declaration of the power of poor and low-wealth people and our moral allies to say that this system is killing ALL of us and we can’t…we won’t…we refuse to be silent anymore!

    CJJ Orientation

    You might be wondering, CJJ is doing great stuff, how do I get involved? How do I get one of those awesome blue t-shirts? Who leads my chapter? Are there other CJJ-niks in my neighborhood?! How do I actually repair the world?

    • Find out about how to join a campaign!
    • Hear from some of our partners! 
    • Meet the new Interim ED!
    • Learn about our new democracy-in-action membership model! (Democracy is a verb!) 
    • Meet chapter leadership! 
    • It’s a meeting! It’s a party! Y’alla have a good time!

    GOTV Shabbat

    Our right to vote — and our ability to exercise that right — is at the heart of democracy. Our GOTV (Get Out The Vote) Shabbat provides us with a moment to celebrate this cherished and hard-fought-for right; reflect on our responsibility to protect and promote it; and recommit ourselves to the critical work of getting out the vote for the 2022 midterm elections. 

    CJJ invites congregations and individuals across North Carolina to join us for our first annual GOTV Shabbat on Friday, October 21, 2022. 

    We'll host a virtual gathering from 5:00-6:00pm, and we hope you'll join us! If you are a member of a congregation or would like to host an in-person event in your home, we'll gladly provide you with additional materials and resources, including talking points, discussion questions, and a list of ways that people can take action on their own or as a group. 

    Your synagogue's GOTV Shabbat could be the culmination of a week-long voter registration drive, a moment to learn more about the ongoing struggle for voting rights in North Carolina, or an opportunity to convene Jewish (or interfaith) congregations to gear up for GOTV efforts between now and November 1. The choice is yours! If you would like to be connected with a local voting rights organizer to join your congregation as a guest speaker, please email [email protected]

    Whether you plan on participating on Zoom, collaborating with your synagogue, or hosting an event yourself, RSVP below and we'll be in touch with more information as the time approaches.
