JWF Monthly Advocacy Issues Update

Dear JWF Trustees and Friends:  

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

We would like to highlight an 
article written by our colleague, friend, and longtime JWF grantee, Amy Rubin, Senior Director of Community Services for Jewish Child & Family Services. Not only does this article highlight the importance of raising your voice and speaking up against violence and abuse, but shares various ways to become involved in our own community as an agent of change. 

As always, please feel free to pass along any information you think we should share with our Trustees.
Rifas, Advocacy Committee Chair
Sara Kalish, Senior Program Officer
