Join Avodah, Jewish Council on Urban Affairs, Mishkan Chicago, Repair the World and Silverstein Base Hillel for our third annual Chicago Justice Series. This year we will focus on themes of safety and security through a Jewish lens: examining our relationships as Jews to law enforcement historically and today, exploring local work on police accountability, and thinking about how various identities we hold may impact how we think about our own safety.
The series will begin with a public kickoff event on Martin Luther King Jr. Day in the evening and will continue with cohort-based learning monthly until the end of May. Looking forward to seeing you for a meaningful discussion over a delicious (and free!) dinner. Please RSVP.
If you are interested in being a part of the cohort for the entire series, please email Hannah Arwe at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are interested in getting more involved with JCUA‘s campaign work on police accountability, this is a great way to do so. Committee meetings are for members only, so if you haven’t yet, join us!
