WRJ Social Justice Conference

Join WRS Members & WRJ in Washington, D.C. to learn, grow, and take action at the inaugural Social Justice Conference (SJC)!

The WRJ Social Justice Conference on May 18-19, 2019 is a brief but powerful experience for Jewish women to become better-educated and trained on social justice issues, learn advocacy skills you can utilize at home and on a larger scale, and address timely topics in a welcoming and encouraging, all-female Jewish environment.

SJC is intended for any woman (age 18+) interested in advocacy in the Reform Movement through a Jewish woman’s lens.

Contact WRS if you’re interested in learning more.

Read More about the conference on the WRJ Website.
