    Bystander Intervention to Stop Antisemetic Harassment

    This 75-minute training will teach you Right To Be’s 5Ds of bystander intervention methodology, created in collaboration with T’ruah: The Rabbinic Call for Human Rights. We’ll start by talking about the forms of antisemitism that the Jewish community faces right now — from microaggressions to violence — using a tool we call the, “Spectrum of Disrespect.” You’ll learn what to look for and the positive impact that bystander intervention has on individuals and communities. We’ll talk through five strategies for intervention: distract, delegate, document, delay, and direct; and how to prioritize your own safety while intervening. We’ll have time at the end for practice, and you’ll leave feeling more confident intervening the next time you see antisemitic harassment online or in person.

    UU Action Hour

    Since May of 2020, Rev. Lisa of the Unitarian Universalist Justice Ministry of NC and friends/partners, including CJJ!, have gathered on Fridays to take action and experience the joy and power of community. Every Friday at 11:00am there's a recap of the past week and an opportunity to take action on the issues impacting our state and country. And there is always great music to help us feel the justice movement in our bones!

    ALL are welcome! Over the past two years, our Friday Action Hour community has grown to include justice partners like The People’s Budget Coalition, The Poor People’s Campaign, NC Justice Center, ProChoice NC and many more! 

    Sign up here if you wish to receive the Weekly Friday Action Hour Email that will include a promo of the week's actions, the Zoom link, and the link to the Actions Google Doc. If you can't make it on Fridays, you can still take action at any time by checking out the weekly action list.  Here is the zoom link if you want to join!

    Our Dollars, Our Future: Day of Advocacy with NC Budget & Tax Center

    Join the North Carolina Budget & Tax Center in Raleigh for a day of advocacy on May 2 to take the budget back to the people. Our state budget matters for almost every aspect of our daily lives — from the air we breathe and water we drink, to the quality of our kids' education — and yet powerful lawmakers are intentionally leaving you out of the process. 

    NCBTC is requesting meetings with legislative leadership to demand a more transparent and equitable budget process, and joining together to discuss how we can organize to ensure future budgets fund the services and programs our state needs so every North Carolinian — from Boone to Wilmington and all parts between — has what they need to thrive. 

    It's time to raise our voices for a well-being budget that's built with input from our communities! Please RSVP at this link and they will be in touch with more details as the date approaches.

    CJJ-Triangle Democracy Circle Reflection Session - May

    CJJ members completed a voter empowerment training in March with You Can Vote (YCV), and are signing up to register folks at events in April.  YCV training sessions and opportunities to contact newly-registered voters occur frequently. We will gather again in May to reflect on our experiences at these outreach events, why we do this, and what's next. Contact Marilyn Hartman for more info on how to get involved with the chapter’s Democracy Circle* to take action together.

    *A Democracy Circle is a small group of voting rights advocates who gather monthly. Each group learns about election activism, plans the actions the members want to take together, and reflects on their experiences.  Along the way we support one another and have fun!
