Repair the World Launches Act for Racial Justice on MLK Weekend
Repair the World has launched a special national campaign, Act for Racial Justice on MLK Weekend. Combining two pillars of Repair’s engagement strategy, Act for Racial Justice offers the opportunity to host a Turn The Tables Shabbat Dinner on January 15th – resources will help facilitate substantive questions and dialogue – followed by numerous volunteer opportunities throughout the weekend addressing racial injustice.
Act for Racial Justice includes national partners like Moishe House, URJ, and BBYO. Young adults interested in hosting a Shabbat Dinner, finding Act for Racial Justice volunteer opportunities, or becoming Repair the World Movement Leaders – the individuals who create volunteer projects – can learn more here. Repair the World also is facilitating a series of online conversations in which Jewish leaders will interview Civil Rights activists of today. Follow these interviews on Repair the World’s website, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter pages with hashtag #AmplifyVoices
In addition to MLK Weekend, Repair the World coordinates major service initiatives around the High Holidays, along with year-round efforts and its flagship program, Repair the World Communities.
