Join us for Acts of Change 2020 presented online on Monday, July 20! Acts of Change is our flagship event in which our entire community comes together to reaffirm JCUA’s mission to transform the City of Chicago into a place that embodies the Jewish values of equity and justice.

In light of the coronavirus pandemic, we’ve re-imagined the Acts of Change in-person dinner as an immersive online experience. We’re excited to bring you an engaging program that includes special guests, music and more.

Register now for Acts of Change 2020.

Every year at Acts of Change, JCUA honors an individual with the Rabbi Robert J. Marx Social Justice Award for their commitment to the values JCUA’s founder Rabbi Marx lives and teaches. We are pleased to honor Jeff Zaluda with this year’s award for his lifelong dedication to pursuing social justice and a more equitable Chicago. Jeff has been a leading voice in JCUA’s work for more than a decade, generously dedicating his time, passion, and resources to carrying forward our mission. He has helped us grow into an organization that is as focused and powerful as we’ve ever been. We are proud to recognize Jeff’s invaluable contributions to JCUA at Acts of Change.

The funds we raise for Acts of Change allows JCUA to activate the Jewish community of Chicago around racial and economic justice. We are grateful for your support.
