WHAT: Think Jewishly, Act Locally: Budgets are Moral Documents

Jewish tradition teaches that in a just world, all people would have what the Torah calls dei machsoro, resources sufficient for their needs. Here in DC, the city’s resources are abundant, but they are not allocated equitably so that everyone benefits. That’s why Jews United for Justice joins many community organizations every year to advocate for a moral city budget. A city budget reflects the priorities and promises of city officials much better than their words. In this workshop we will learn about the DC’s 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.

A vegetarian dinner will be served.

This is part 2 of a 3 part series on local advocacy. Check out Part 3: Speaking Your Truth to Power
