Raise Up IL Text Bank @ Zoom
May 26 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
As we are all painfully aware, it has been over a year of the COVID pandemic, and our communities in Chicago and IL are struggling to survive. Paying rent, finding childcare, and necessary medical care have become a daily struggle for millions.  Now is the time for major investments in our communities and we can pay for that by taxing those who have made billions of dollars in profits during the pandemic!

As part of Grassroots Collaborative’s involvement in the Raise Up IL campaign, we are supporting a package of 8 proposals, which would raise over 2 billion dollars by ending tax breaks for big corporations and ultra-wealthy individuals who have gotten richer over the pandemic. We are calling for this money to be invested in long-term programs for our community: K-12 education, childcare, the community care program, housing, immigrant support services, and tax relief for working families.

We know our communities cannot wait.  We need action now.

Torah of Organizing: Housing @ Zoom
May 26 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Join us for our on-going series, The Torah of Organizing with Rabbi Aryeh Bernstein. In this session, we’ll explore what the Torah has to say about housing. This will be an interactive, chavruta (paired-learning) event. This will be an all-levels-are-welcome space, so if you’ve never explored Torah in this way before, this is a perfect place to start. All you need is curiosity and the desire to learn with other JCUA community members!
