Breaking Bread, Not Building Walls: A Timely Community Conversation Under the Sukkah

On October 19th, we will gather in the Sukkah to hold a kitchen table conversation about the core racial and economic justice issues that matter most in local, state, and national elections. In the weeks and months ahead, JFREJ leaders in the Caring Majority are organizing in NYC and statewide to collect pledges ensuring that issues related to caregiving and aging are front and center in this year’s election and beyond. RSVP below. Food at 6 PM, Program at 6:30 PM Leading up to this year’s election, JFREJ is taking part in a national civic engagement collaborative called We Won’t Wait. We Won’t Wait is a national movement of women taking our families’ concerns from the kitchen table to the voting booth, and transforming our communities one conversation at a time. Anchored by 500,000 “kitchen table conversations,” we will embark on a significant effort via targeted voter education, engagement, and mobilization efforts in key states centered around prioritizing a women’s economic agenda, including a focus on care and caregiving. We will focus on lifting up a policy agenda that addresses the leading concerns of women of color, low-­income women, and immigrant women, and centers their experiences and voices on the solutions needed for change. We will leverage this momentum towards engaging and motivating voters, around the issues they care about, with a focus on the New American Majority, in the Fall of 2016 and beyond.
