Social Justice/Greater Cleveland Congregations Committee

We work with Greater Cleveland Congregations, a non-partisan coalition of faith-based communities and neighborhood organizations from across Cuyahoga County. The purpose is to work together across divides of race, class, and religion to promote civic actions that improve the quality of life for everyone in Greater Cleveland. This committee also identifies and participates in social justice activities and actions, beyond the work of GCC, that are of particular interest and relevance to B'nai Jeshurun and committee members. For more information, or to get involved, contact Lee Markowitz, Committee Chair. 

GCC Delegate Assembly                                  Thursday, June 30, 2022 at 7pm

 

GCC continues to grow! We have added new members and new staff and we have taken on new issues with a passion that is the hallmark of our organization. With this growth, it is important that we look for ways to engage those in our member organizations who may not be active on our issue teams, but who care deeply about the fabric of a democratic society.

Next Thursday, June 30th at 7pm at our Delegate Assembly, we will be introducing our Engage GCC campaign, a way for us to more strongly connect with and involve people within our member institutions and ignite their passion for the issues they care about.

Register for the June 30th Delegate Assembly here.

All are welcome to learn about this exciting campaign! 

 

GCC Teach-In and Action Planning MeetingTuesday, June 28,2022 at 7pm

The Pretrial Justice branch of GCC’s Criminal Justice Team invites everyone to our Teach-In and Action Planning Meeting - next Tuesday, June 28th, 7-8:30pm.

This meeting is to update all of us and to develop an action plan for a solution.

We will cover:

· The problem of unjustly jailing people before trial, mostly because they are black or brown and/or poor;

· A potential solution (specifically pretrial services, including bail changes); and

· GCC’s important role in stopping the injustice.

The current system hurts people every day and the public pays for unjustly jailing people without any increase in public safety. GCC must act. We can do it together. Join us.
