JEWISH VOICES FOR AN INCLUSIVE GREENSBORO

 

The Jewish Community Relations Committee builds and maintains strong relationships with our city's diverse set of communities in service of a common vision: an equitable, just and inclusive Greensboro. We rise collectively and as individuals to stand against bigotry and discrimination, learn about injustices - past and present - so we can confront them, and champion justice and human rights in our city and all over the world. We learn. We educate. We advocate. And we mobilize.

 

IT IS EVERY CITIZEN’S RIGHT TO VOTE FOR THE CANDIDATES OF THEIR CHOICE.

 

Election Day is Tuesday, November 8, 2022.

 

The Jewish Community Relations Committee seeks to ensure every American has the information and easy access to voter and election education.  We embrace the opportunity to engage with our political system as a tool for pursuing justice, giving people choice, and repairing the world. In that spirit, we encourage you to get out and vote.
