ABOUT JCUA

The Jewish Council on Urban Affairs (JCUA) advances racial and economic justice by bringing together the Chicagoland Jewish community as a powerful force for change. Since 1964, we have worked to transform our region into a place free of racism, poverty, and antisemitism, where everyone is safe, protected, and has the opportunity to thrive.

JCUA mobilizes a multiracial, intergenerational, and pluralistic Jewish community to take action on the most critical issues facing our city and state. We build relationships of solidarity with diverse communities and organizations, working together on campaigns to reform or dismantle oppressive systems and build a society rooted in equity and justice.
