Our Advocacy

Racial Justice

The Reform Movement works in partnership with representatives from diverse communities to fight the structural racism that is embedded in our society and to advance justice for all people.

Separation of Church and State

The First Amendment to the Constitution is the cornerstone of American religious freedom, ensuring through the Establishment Clause and the Free Exercise Clause that the government does not support religious practices.

Health Care and Congress

Health Care

Millions of Americans live without health insurance, and attacks on the Affordable Care Act and other areas of the health care system have resulted in millions of people without health insurance.

Economic Justice

The Reform Movement has always acted upon fundamental Jewish ideals by advocating for children, the poor, the disenfranchised, the elderly, the sick, those with disabilities, and the "stranger among us."

Responding with Intention: Preparing our Communities to Respond to Acts of Antisemitism and Hate

July 29, 2021
Reflecting the need for open conversation regarding the rise in antisemitism and the ways in which it directly affects our communities and synagogues, Rabbi Rick Jacobs (President, URJ), Yolanda Savage-Narva (Director for Racial Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, URJ) Jonathan Greenblatt (CEO, ADL), and Carly Pildis (Associate Director of Community Engagement, ADL) discussed the necessity of responding to antisemitism and hate more broadly.

NFTY Teens Advocate at Texas Capitol for Voting Rights

July 19, 2021
On Monday, Democratic state legislators in Texas walked out of the capitol building and flew to Washington, DC aboard private jets. This move broke the quorum of the Texas House, currently preventing the legislature from effectively operating, and consequently, from passing Senate Bill 1 and House Bill 3 which would restrict the freedom to vote. I took a charter bus to the Texas Capitol in Austin on Tuesday with fellow NFTY regional board member and RAC organizer Ronen Wenderfer where we teamed up with partner organizations to hold a rallied press conference, meet with legislators, and drop off postcards at their offices.
