D.C. Day of Action

-
The D.C. Day of Action is a peak moment in the Reform Movement’s 2023 Justice Campaign. This campaign aims to build power in solidarity while creating a world of peace and wholeness (shalom), justice and equity (tzedek), and belonging and joy (shayachut and simcha). We will gather in Washington, D.C. for two days to hear from keynote speakers including elected officials and leaders from partner organizations. We will also spend time in smaller cohorts, building community across our networks. The Day of Action will culminate in lobby meetings on Capitol Hill, during which we will advocate for vital policy change.

Each of us may (or likely) knows someone, either in our Jewish community or our secular communities, who has been impacted by or is a survivor of domestic violence.
