Education, leadership development, and advocacy from a progressive Jewish platform

The Jewish Center for Justice is a distinguished social justice, education, and leadership development platform that empowers current and future leaders to build a more compassionate and just society.

A diverse movement and community spanning generations and denominations, JCJ connects Jewish justice activists with unique opportunities to formulate their voices and make a real impact on issues such as immigration, gun violence prevention, economic justice, climate change, and more.

“Engaging with JCJ on campus has enriched my college experience by providing the tools and confidence I needed to raise my voice for justice, as well as a better understanding of how my activism is intrinsically linked to my Judaism.”
— Kevin Gibson, UC Berkeley

Action: Urge your Senators to OPPOSE Judge Amy Coney Barrett

Action: Urge your Senators to OPPOSE Judge Amy Coney Barrett

Following the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, President Trump and Senate leadership rushed to nominate a replacement on the Supreme Court. Meanwhile, the president and the Senate neglected to pass any coronavirus relief bills.

This is deeply immoral.

We are now calling on all members of the JCJ community to call your Senators to urge them to oppose the Senate confirmation hearings process and vote ‘No’ on nominee Amy Coney Barrett should it come to a vote. The American people deserve a say in the process by way of the upcoming election.

Dial U.S. Capitol Switchboard: (202) 224-3121

Sample telephone / email script

Hello,

I’m a citizen of [Your state] and I’m calling to urge [Your Senator’s name] to oppose the Supreme Court confirmation hearing process for Judge Amy Coney Barrett. Senate leadership held up the nomination process in 2016, citing that the American people deserve a say in who selects the next Supreme Court Justice. In 2020, that same standard must be upheld. Further, I urge the Senator to vote ‘No’ to not confirm Judge Barrett should the confirmation process come to a vote.

Thank you.
