Think Jewishly, Act Locally 2: Budgets are Moral Documents

Adults (18+)

Date : Tuesday, Feb 13

Time : 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Location : Edlavitch DCJCC
1529 Sixteenth Street, NW, Washington, DC

An interactive workshop with Jews United for Justice, where we’ll learn about the DC budget process, past social justice victories in budget campaigns, and how you can get more involved.

Jewish tradition teaches that in a just world, all people would have what the Torah calls dei machsoro, resources sufficient for their needs. A city budget reflects the priorities and promises of city officials much better than their words. Here in DC, the city’s resources are abundant, but they are not allocated equitably so that everyone benefits. In this workshop we will learn about the DC budget process, past victories for social justice won through budget campaigns, and what you can do right now to ensure that next year’s budget reflects the Jewish social justice values that many of us share.
