Advocacy is about action. And for NCJW Greater Long Beach & West Orange County, our actions are guided by our Jewish values of repairing the world (Tikkun Olam) and justice (Tzedek). We strive to improve the quality of life for women, children, and families, and to safeguard individual rights and freedoms.
We have organized our social justice work around issue areas or “Portfolios.” Click here to see our Advocacy Portfolio Chart.
Within each area, we work with our local, state, and national coalition partners and allies to create positive change. In addition, members travel to NCJW Washington Institute and to Sacramento to meet with our national and state legislators, where they discuss critically important issues and relevant legislation under consideration.
