DJC Teens: Social Justice Academy
April 14 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating until April 14, 2021
The DJC Teen Group will join teens from across Canada for the Religious Action Centre’s Social Justice Academy. We will attend a 3-part workshop called “Action and Advocacy”. We will learn about advocating in the Canadian legislative system about Canadian issues. If you care about social justice and want to learn hands-on ways to make your voice heard, this program is for you!
We will examine the following essential questions:
Why should I be a Jewish voice for justice?
How is my faith, moral voice an important voice in this moment?
What is an issue and a systemic solution I can advocate for ?
How can I take action?
Session 1: 75 minutes – Judaism, Justice & Systemic Change
Session 2: 75 minutes – What’s the problem? solution? Issue-based
Session 3: 75 minutes – Taking Action
Session 4: optional, self-facilitated by delegation (w/ facilitation guide provided by RAC)
The cost is on a sliding scale from $0-$60. We will be able to subsidize all those who ask.
