CJJ members continue to grow our organizing work in new and powerful ways. Read more and sign up below to get involved in one of our emergent action areas.
We determine an issue is emergent when a group of CJJ members take on leadership and a partner organization or coalition led by the directly impacted community invites us into the work.
Members of CJJ across the state take action with the Health Advocacy Project (HAP) at the NC Justice Center. With postcard campaigns and legislative visits, CJJ and HAP work together to ensure all North Carolinians, including individuals and families with low incomes, racial and ethnic minorities, and rural communities, have meaningful access to high quality, affordable, equitable, and comprehensive health care so that children, adults, and families have better health outcomes and productive lives.

Carolina Jews for Justice is proud to follow the leadership of Dayenu: A Jewish Call to Climate Action to secure a just, livable and sustainable world for all people for generations to come by building a multi-generational Jewish movement that confronts the climate crisis with spiritual audacity and bold political action.
CJJ-Durham/Orange County Chapter is an active member of Interfaith Creation Care of the Triangle. ICCT was founded by members of twenty faith communities in North Carolina’s Triangle area in February, 2019. The mission of ICCT is “to work within and across communities of faith to urgently fulfill our sacred duty to love and protect Creation, address our changing climate, and ensure justice for all life.” If you are interested in getting involved in environmental justice work as a Jewish community, click here to send an email to Rachel Karasik.
