March with our teens for a better future!

March with our teens for a better future!

Posted on March 23rd, 2018

In the aftermath of the devastating shooting in Parkland, FL, NFTY and the URJ, our Reform Jewish teens and adults, have acted quickly to mobilize for change. Yesterday, on the one-month anniversary of the shooting, students across the country participated in school walkouts and continue to prepare for March 24 and its “March for Our Lives” events across the country.

Reform Jewish teens and young adults in our GFC and NFTY-TOR community are joining congregations across the region are following the lead of our youth and organizing with them in “March for Our Lives” marches across our region. We as a camp community are proud to partner in these efforts to amplify the voices of our youth. Below is information for gatherings in our region. We hope that you and your family can join us at these events or at events in your local community as part of the Reform Jewish Movement’s response to gun violence.
