Unleashing the Chutzpah of Young Jewish Leaders

Young organizers have been integral to some of the most sweeping progressive movements in our nation’s history. From the work of young activists like Clara Lemlich in fighting sweatshop labor practices at the turn of the last century, to hundreds of young leaders like Mickey Schwerner, Andrew Goodman, and James Chaney during Freedom Summer 1964, young organizers have often had a profound influence on movements for justice, equality, and dignity.

Help Someone Change Their Record, Change Their Life

Thanks to a new law called Proposition 47, people may be able to get non-violent felonies like drug possession or shoplifting removed from their records.

Join Bend the Arc and Beit T'Shuvah for a training with Eunisses Hernandez from Drug Policy Alliance on how to support reclassification applications. This opportunity to help with record change will end soon so volunteers are needed to help submit reclassification applications before the opportunity ends.

To learn more about Proposition 47, go to their website.
