JCUA Fair Tax Presentation with Beth Emet @ Zoom
Aug 12 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm

 A Primer on the Illinois Fair Tax Campaign

with Marissa Levy, Anna Rubin, Gwen Tucker and Abby White of the Jewish Council on Urban Affairs

Wednesday, August 12 at 7:30 pm

On November 3rd Illinois voters will go to the polls not only to elect a president, but to vote on an amendment to the state constitution.  If approved, this amendment, known as the Fair Tax Amendment, will allow enactment of a graduated rate income tax in the state.  Currently, Illinois has a flat rate income tax, which has created one of the most unfair taxing systems in the nation. It fails to tax people relative to their income and the impact is clear: a structural deficit, inadequate levels of core services to Illinois communities, and a bruised state economy. These problems have only been exacerbated in recent months with the onset of COVID-19 and the ongoing uprisings for racial justice in the state.  Join us at this session to learn about the campaign to pass the Fair Tax Amendment and how we can take action as a Jewish community to more equitably and justly fund our state.

Fair Tax Shabbat with OneTable & Repair the World
Aug 21 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

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.

Make sure to RSVP!

Note: Participants must be 21+ in age to attend.
