Upcoming Actions and Events

RAC-IL Civic Engagement Campaign Kickoff

Join us to learn RAC-IL's specific strategies for our non-partisan civic engagement work in 2020. We will address all primary areas, including mobilizing our voters and engaging students in high school and college. In addition, we'll outline opportunities to combat proven voter suppression in Wisconsin, at the request of our northern neighbors. We will also offer time to hear your ideas and answer any questions. Finally, we'll provide a timeline for action and highlight ways you can network with each other and access local support and coaching over the next 6 months.

2020 Legislative Action Agenda

In 2020, RAC-IL’s Legislative Agenda included campaigns addressing immigrant justice and criminal justice reform. Due to the global pandemic, RAC-IL pivoted to a COVID-19 Agenda to meet immediate needs prioritized by our coalition partners.

Get Involved

Join The Brit Olam

The Brit Olam, covenant with our world, is a central way Reform Jewish communities can commit to pursuing justice with others across our Movement as well as in partnership at the local, state and national levels.  Communities who join the Brit Olam choose from two types of networked social justice work—RAC state projects or issue-based cohorts—to ensure that we, as a movement, are leveraging our collective knowledge, skill, and relationships to make lasting impact on the issues we care about, grounded deeply in the text and tradition that bind us together.
