Jewish and Japanese Community Dinner: Never Again is Now @ Japanese American Service Committee (JASC)
Jul 12 @ 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm

In preparation for the Take Action to End Criminalization, Detention & Deportations rally on July 13, JCUA is holding a joint Shabbat dinner with the Japanese American Citizens Leage (JACL). Because Jewish and Japanese Americans share a history of coercion and detention, it’s important for us to stand together against the administration’s cruel treatment and detention of immigrants. At the dinner, we’ll work together to create the banner for the July 13 rally.

JCore Meeting on Fair Tax @ Grace Place
Jul 31 @ 6:15 pm – 8:00 pm

Join us for a JCore meeting on Tuesday, July 31 to discuss the exciting opportunities for JCUA to organize around the Fair Tax campaign. The Fair Tax referendum will be on the ballot in November 2020, and if passed, will allow the state of Illinois to tax wealthier residents at a higher rate to direct more money for public goods and services. JCUA has been a long-standing supporter of this campaign. We’re holding this meeting to discuss the impact of the referendum and to gather your ideas about how JCUA can best move forward.

RSVP here.
