Shaare Emeth’s new Justice at the Center initiative is a model of social justice work that aims to address the root causes of injustice. It begins with relationship-building within our Shaare Emeth community. In this first phase of the initiative members sit face-to-face in house meetings listening to one another’s stories about the challenges we face, the injustices we see in our community, and our desire to work toward change. These stories are the building blocks of this initiative as they will help us determine which social justice issue we will tackle first. Our goal is to listen to the stories of 500 Shaare Emeth members over the next two months and we are well on our way to meeting that goal.
Our Justice at the Center House Meetings are progressing. Thank you to everyone who has volunteered to host a meeting and thank you to all who have attended. If you would like to attend a house meeting but have not yet received an invitation or if you would like to learn more about Justice at the Center please contact Stacy Jespersen at [email protected].
