Review for Join for Justice, Boston, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My experience at JOI was one of the defining moments of my early career and has critically impacted the way I approach my work and see the world! Learning how to develop others' leadership and organize around issues impacting a community are skills that have greatly benefitted me in my subsequent jobs and experiences. I also gained a new awareness of how inequalities manifest themselves in society and what we can do to change the status quo. Being part of JOI also enabled me to plug into a vast network of social justice and Jewish resources and organizations in the greater Boston community, and gave me the opportunity to meet amazing community leaders, activists and friends.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The in-depth community organizing skills that I gained through my work and through sessions with leading activists and organizers from across the northeast.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Passionate, dedicated and super-intelligent.
