If our class times do not work for your schedule, we are happy to bring them to you. Gather a group of your neighbors, parent of school-age (or older!) children, congregants, dorm-mates or whomever. Tell us the topic you want and we will arrange for one of our trained speakers to present the training of your choice.
The Advocacy in Action Third Thursday Lunch & Learn programs take place each month and feature outstanding guest speakers on topics related to our advocacy work. Recent speakers have represented PROMO, Planned Parenthood, ACLU, Anti-Defamation League, and the Seniors Count initiative.
Courts Matter Coalition
NCJWSTL spearheads a coalition that aims to keep our courts fair and balanced. We know that the judicial branch of government is critical to the issues we care about and that it is important that we have fair and impartial judges. The coalition is interested in both maintaining the Missouri Court Plan as well as ensuring that federal vacancies are filled with fair minded constatutionalists.
We have a large committee that works in many ways to combat human trafficking, focusing on community education and legislative advocacy. Activities include a speaker’s bureau that goes to other organizations, meeting with elected officials about policy change, as well as educating the Jewish community through our Passover Project.
One-session hands-on class on using Facebook and Twitter to spread our advocacy message to your friends and family.
