State of Abortion: State Policy & Advocacy Briefing
In the wake of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, access to abortion is now a patchwork collection of laws and ongoing legal challenges. Join NCJW on August 4 at 2pm for a state policy and advocacy-focused call to learn and discuss how we can meet this moment. Bella Pori and Victoria Gillison from the Center for Reproductive Rights will brief us on the current legal landscape and leaders of the Liberate Abortion Campaign’s State Policy Table will share some specific ways to take action.
Nonpartisan Advocacy in Partisan Times
Election years provide a great opportunity for organizations like NCJW to highlight issues and interact with candidates and the voting public. Join us to learn how to highlight issues and interact with candidates while avoiding the appearance or reality of electioneering and other partisan activity, particularly in public and social media communications.
NCJW + League of Women Voters Event
Join National Council of Jewish Women CEO Sheila Katz and League of Women Voters CEO Virginia Kase Solomón to get informed and excited about the voting landscape this year.
