Jews Working for Justice: Yesterday and Today

JCUA is an organization with a long and rich history in Chicago and has played a major role in justice work in the city since the civil rights movement.  Through a variety of media, this session takes participants through the ways the Jewish community has been integral to fighting racism, hatred, and other injustices in the city.  This historical journey will take the participants to today, creating a context for the important work JCUA is currently doing. We will then introduce one of our campaigns and how participants can continue this strong history through justice work today.
