Register here to join us for a day of learning on racial justice as a Chicagoland Jewish community. This day will be multifaceted and have programming for all ages.

We will begin with prayer and reflection and then learn from many teachers, most of whom identify as Jews of Color (JOC). Participants are welcome to join for one session, a few or all day!

Non-Violent Direct Action Training
Feb 13 @ 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Register here to join JCUA’s first Non-Violent Direct Action Training! This training is meant to give JCUA members the theoretical background, skills, and grounding necessary to participate in non-violent direct action, including potential civil disobedience. Attending the training is not a commitment to join any action, but we hope that attendees will be open to taking action with JCUA and our coalition partners in the future.

As of now, the training will be held in-person. All participants must send proof of vaccination in advance, get a negative COVID test that week, and wear a mask throughout the training. We will be monitoring COVID numbers in advance of the training, and let you know if anything changes.
