Flood the 5th Ward Phone Lines
Sep 1 @ 9:00 am – 6:00 pm

Flood the Fifth Ward Phone Lines: Last month, a group of KAM Isaiah Israel members went to the office of Ald. Leslie Hairston to ask her to meet with them to discuss Bring Chicago Home — a campaign that would create $160M of new revenue for the city to spend on homelessness services. Hairston’s staff promised to get back to us, but they have not yet done so. So on Thursday, we’re hoping to get as many people as possible to call her office and urge her to sign on to this important legislation. Sign up below to commit to taking five minutes to making a call into the office.

Organizing 101 Training
Sep 11 @ 9:30 am – 4:30 pm

Organizing 101 will cover the foundational skills and concepts around community organizing: power analysis, values, relationships, self-interest; one-on-ones, and our connections as Jews. This training is a great opportunity to learn and practice core organizing skills, meet other JCUA members, and gain a better understanding of our method of social change.

Spots are limited, and we will be prioritizing applications from participants who have not yet attended an Organizing 101 training with JCUA . But we encourage all interested folks to apply!

Please reach out to Jimmy Rothschild (jimmy@jcua.org) or Mara Wolkoff (mara@jcua.org) if you have any questions. Applications will close on Friday, September 2.
