Description: Reform CA is a joint campaign of California Reform Movement to act powerfully together for justice in our state. As a project of the all the social justice initiatives of the Reform Movement (the Peace and Justice Committee of the CCAR, the Religious Action Center, and the Just Congregations) we feel called to come together as a Movement to play a role in repairing the California dream. We join with one another to address systemic issues of injustice that hurt our families and our brothers and sisters across lines of race, class, and faith. Justice has been at the foundation of our Reform Jewish Movement since its inception. Acting together, we seek to build a California that is just, compassionate, thriving, and inspiring. Volunteers hold one-to-one and small group gatherings to discover what issues concern us a individuals and then group together to address commonalities.

Family Friendly: No

Is It B’nai Mitzvah Project Worthy?: 10-hour minimum commitment – requires several months advance planning and approval by Event Chair and Mitzvah Project Coordinator. Interested students should check with the Event Chairs about actual needs.
