Jewish Labor Committee Joins #GivingTuesday
Now in its fourth year, #GivingTuesday has grown into a global giving event on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. On December 1st, the Jewish Labor Committee is joining this movement. Now it's your turn. Black Friday and Cyber Monday were the two best days to get a good deal. Now we can add a third day. Get the best deal of all this year through helping the next Jewish generation.
Years ago, many American Jews were active in the organized labor movement. Today this is no longer the case – many young Jews are not as knowledgeable and sympathetic to workers' issues. We at the JLC have initiated a program to help turn this around.
You're invited to join the Jewish Labor Committee this #GivingTuesday and help our campus organizing initiative on labor rights and economic inequality through "From History to Action." From History to Action is our educational program engaging Jewish college students in exploring the contribution of American Jews to the labor movement, and the roots of Jewish social justice, empowering them to get involved with local labor activism. From History to Action is not only fostering a deeper sense of the many links between Jewish identity and social justice in individuals, but also the larger community. From History to Action consists of a series of programs we run with the help of student fellows.
We are currently operating on the campuses of Tufts, Brandeis, and Harvard, and with your help we can expand From History to Action to campuses nationwide. Your donation of $18 ($36, $72, $90...) can help these students become great activists for economic justice. So join us and invest in the future of economic justice and tomorrow's Jewish labor activists.
