Review for Join for Justice, Boston, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was looking for a way to be active in community-based action after college, and a friend and JOI fellow convinced me that JOI was an experience worth having. Not only does the fellowship train young Jewish leaders to be exceptional organizers, but it produces its own community within each cohort and with the alumni community nationwide. I had a wealth of great experiences, and the people who interacted with all of the fellows became active advocates for their own needs within the political system. I am currently living in LA attending rabbinical school,and I am still involved as a part-time organizer out here because I know that the work of community organizing is vital to the equitable functioning of our political system.

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

learning the skills to be able to train others in fighting for their own needs

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand the impact of the program to other cities in the country

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month
