Criminal Justice Reform Team Meeting

1721 Broadway Suite #201
94612 Oakland , CA

Mass incarceration has drastic impacts on our communities and Bend the Arc: Bay Area has joined a campaign to turn the tide. Today, close to 135,000 Californians are in state prison, costing more than $62,000 each annually. We need to end the cycle of mass incarceration and we should be spending more money on education than incarceration, especially of non-violent offenders. 

Join our Criminal Justice Reform campaign at our bi-montly team meeting. RSVP to ldavari@bendthearc.us

Starting With Ourselves: A Jewish Open Space for Anti-Racism

JCC East Bay, Berkeley Branch

The Bend the Arc Racial Justice team invites you to participate in an informal gathering, or "open space".

Often many of us feel we lack the language, support system, or knowledge to do or support anti-racist work. This gathering will be a supportive space to explore experiences and assumptions in the service of ending racism. Come ready to engage in thoughtful and thought-provoking conversations. All questions, concerns, levels of understanding, and connections with Judaism are welcome. No experience necessary.

For more information and to RSVP, please contact the Racial Justice Team at btarjteam@gmail.com.

*All Jews are welcome to participate and we anticipate white Jews to be the majority of participants at these sessions. If you are a Jew of Color and would like to connect with other Jews of Color through Bend the Arc, please contact Leili at ldavari@bendthearc.us.
