Join JCUA, Repair the World, and OneTable for a Fair Tax Shabbat on Friday, August 21st. Shabbat is a way of dreaming up the world we want to see. Together, we’ll discuss the Fair Tax Amendment, talk about how this plays into the world we want to see for our future. This is an on-going, Chicago-wide conversation. We welcome folks who are just learning about this for the first time, to those who are already working on the ground on this initiative – and anyone in between! This will be a grounding evening for learning, conversation, and action. We’ll share in Shabbat ritual, discussion breakout rooms, as well as brainstorm how we can take part in the Fair Tax ballot initiative. In our small groups, guests can choose between three conversations: making art with visual representations of the Fair Tax, discuss relational building and how to talk about building a better future with their friends, family, and co-workers, and learning how to set up a presentation with other organizations or communities they’re involved in.
Note: Participants must be 21+ in age to attend.
