This Giving Tuesday, the Jewish Center for Justice community would like to direct your attention to several organizations and causes we have worked with this past year that are making a difference on important issues which we care about deeply. With so many amazing groups across the country doing impactful justice work, you may be having trouble deciding where to give. In an effort to help focus your options, we’ve put together a list of organizations that are making a significant impact in the following areas:
- Immigration and reuniting families separated at the border
- Fair housing and affordability
- The devastation from the recent California wildfires
The California Immigrant Policy Center advocates for policies that uphold the humanity of immigrants and refugees while advancing racial, social and economic justice.
Fair Housing and Affordability
Economic justice remains a top priority issue for JCJ. To help confront the lack of affordability that vulnerable communities experience on a daily basis, we encourage you to support the St. Joseph Center. The St. Joseph Center seeks to provide working poor families, as well as homeless men, women and children of all ages, with the resources and tools to become productive, stable and self-supporting members of the community.
The California wildfires have left our communities devastated and in desperate need of repair. Fortunately, there are many ways to help individual families and centers that are hosting families. Click here to donate to The California Community Foundation’s Wildfire Relief Fund, which supports immediate, mid- and long-term recovery efforts for major California wildfires, as well as support for animals affected by wildfires.
