Apply today! The JFREJ Youth Brigade needs you!
Jews for Racial & Economic Justice is proud to be launching our Youth Brigade, a program to engage Jewish high school students age 13 - 18 to work towards JFREJ's ongoing mission of speaking truth to power and pursuing racial and economic justice right here at home.
Our goal is to empower a group of ten youth to grow as community leaders and create transformative change in themselves, their communities, and New York City. Together, we will infuse JFREJ with layers of creative organizing, artistic mischief, and revolutionary love.
Young people who join the Youth Brigade will:
- Learn how to be awesome organizers and facilitators
- Learn about the role that they and other young people can play in social justice and movement-building; get to organize and make friends with revolutionary Jewish and non-Jewish youth
- Take action by participating in JFREJ’s Campaign for Police Accountability and Shalom Bayit: Justice for Domestic Workers Campaign
- Deepen their creative talents to express themselves around issues of power and oppression
- Become a Jewish activist: build puppets, write songs, create theatre, and rally the people for justice and liberation!
Applications are due Friday, September 12. Click here for more information and to download the application.
