Youth Organizing Caucus

During the summer of 2020, a group of young members began organizing with JCUA on the Fair Tax campaign. Now, young people involved in JCUA’s work through previous campaigns, Or Tzedek cohorts, or other teens come together as part of our Youth Organizing Caucus. This caucus is a youth-led space which meets monthly to build community, discuss current events, and take action on issues we care most about.

The Youth Organizing Caucus is led by JCUA’s youth liaisons — leaders who are plugged into each of JCUA’s organizing campaigns who help coordinate youth involvement in JCUA’s intergenerational work.

For information about our Youth Organizing Caucuses, reach out to Mara Wolkoff, JCUA’s Manager of Youth Education and Organizing.

Queer Youth Caucus

An entirely youth-led space that meets monthly for anyone who identifies as a member of the queer community! The majority of Queer Youth Caucus meetings aim to build community among this shared identity, but the group has also facilitated Havdalah events, as well as general outward facing educational programs.

JOC Youth Caucus

A monthly space for any youth who identifies as a Jew of Color. Members build community with one another as well as other members of Kol Or (JCUA’s intergenerational Jews of Color Caucus).
