In 2020, the Reform Movement launched Every Voice, Every Vote: The Reform Movement’s Civic Engagement Campaign with a focus on combatting voter suppression that particularly suppresses the votes and voices of Communities of Color. As Reform Jews, we are called to continue the fight for racial justice and fulfill the sacred work of creating a more just, compassionate, and whole world.
This campaign will address systemic racism by demanding policy change on the national level to ensure the U.S. federal Freedom to Vote and on the state level to advocate for racially just policies. It will also focus on reforming Canadian federal mandatory minimum laws and will push members of the Reform Jewish community to do essential Racial Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (REDI) and antiracism work within our communities and ourselves.
Find information and resources below about or national, Canadian, state, and REDI/ antiracism work and learn how to get involved in this crucial work.
Reform Jews across the United States will meet virtually with their U.S. Senators July 26 - August 6 to advocate in support of the For the People Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act. Please indicate your interest in participating in lobby meetings with your Senators and let us know how you would like to take part.

This campaign aims to help dismantle systemic racism by educating, inspiring, and empowering individuals and communities to look inwardly to make communal change and outwardly to win legislative change.
