JWF Monthly Advocacy Issues Update

Dear JWF Trustees and Friends:  

We are pleased to share the Advocacy Committee's August update highlighting our grantees and issues impacting Jewish women and girls. 

Congratulations to JWF grantee
Roger Baldwin Foundation at the ACLU on signing into law Senate Bill 1564, which amends the Illinois Health Care Right of Conscience Act, assuring that patients will get all the information they need in order to make important health care decisions about their treatment.  

Please join JWF and 
JCAST at Slice of Life for a lunch and learn with Rabbi Levi Lauer, founder of ATZUM, on Tuesday, September 6, 2016 from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm. Registration and more information can be found here.

As always, please feel free to pass along any information you think we should share with our Trustees.
