The National Council of Jewish Women, Greater Houston Section, partnering with NCJW Inc, and JOIN (Jewish Organizing Institute & Network) for Justice, is hosting an all-day workshop on how to build skills to more effectively advocate.
This workshop is a Jewish leadership training, called ROAR!, Resistance, Organizing, Action and Resilience. Over 760 people have attended ROAR! trainings in 19 cities around the country. The training is designed for those new and those with more experience in social justice work to come together to develop campaigns that make real change. Participants will explore how to work across lines of difference, how to find strength and resilience to allow us to work for justice long-term, and how Jewish wisdom can guide us and ground us in this moment.
The workshop will take place on Sunday, March 25 at St. James Community Room, 5555 Del Monte from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Lunch will be provided. The cost to attend this event is $15.

This workshop is open to members of the community, but all attendees must register in advance. Seating is limited. To reserve your place, click here.

The National Council of Jewish Women
Greater Houston Section

The National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW) is a grassroots organization of volunteers and advocates who turn progressive ideals into action. Inspired by Jewish values, NCJW strives for social justice by improving the quality of life for women, children, and families and by safeguarding individual rights and freedoms.

NCJW has been at the forefront of social change for over a century – championing the needs of women, children and families – while courageously taking a progressive stance on such issues as child welfare, women’s rights, and reproductive freedom. We are in our schools, our courthouses, our State Houses, on the phone and in the trenches working towards changing lives every day.

NCJW Greater Houston Section (GHS) helps change lives with hands on community service projects and advocacy throughout the Greater Houston Area. Issues we address in our community include domestic violence, human trafficking, homelessness, childhood reading fundamentals, foster care reform, and adolescent sexual assault.

We serve the community through our AVDA Client Assistance Fund, Human Traffic Stop NCJW Provisional Supply Bank, Back 2 School Store!, HIPPY graduation celebration, Camp Victory reunion, scholarships, and homeless and foster youth educational programs and services. NCJW GHS social justice programs provide education and legislative advocacy on issues that affect and impact women, children and families in the areas of children’s rights, economic justice, healthcare, human trafficking, reproductive justice, LGBTQ rights, and gender related violence.

All who come to NCJW share this: a belief that progressive ideas put into action can improve the world.
