CJJ-Wake County is teaming up with the Social Action Committee and the Progressive Kehillah at Beth Meyer Synagogue host North Carolina Attorney General Josh Stein for a presentation about his work and priorities, which include promoting public safety, protecting seniors and consumers, and preserving clean air and water in our state. Please join us for what's sure to be an informative event!
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.)
The training will go from 5:00-6:30, followed by a Purim party, which all are welcome to attend at the Pinhook (117 W Main St, Durham).
This is the third of a series of three identical trainings being offered between January-March.

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 firstname.lastname@example.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).
