The Commission on Social Action (CSA) of Reform Judaism is a joint commission of the Central Conference of American Rabbis and the Union for Reform Judaism and its affiliates. The CSA and the RAC inspire and implement the social justice policy positions of the Union for Reform Judaism and Central Conference of American Rabbis (CCAR).
The CSA functions as a deliberative, policy-development and leadership body, bringing the vision of Reform Judaism to issues of social justice. The CSA provides governance for itself and the Religious Action Center (RAC). The CSA is involved with social justice education, programming, advocacy, and leadership development within the congregations and affiliates of the Reform Movement. Its members engage congregations and constituencies to advocate at the federal, state and local levels for the positions which the CSA and/or the URJ and the CCAR have adopted. The goal of this work is to empower the Reform Movement to realize its social justice agenda.
