Save the Dates: Consultation on Conscience
Congregation Beth Am is sending a delegation to the Consultation on Conscience, the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism’s biennial social justice leadership conference. Held over three days in Washington, D.C., Consultation empowers the Reform Jewish Movement through leadership development; opportunities for network and community building; and active dialogue culminating in an afternoon of advocacy on Capitol Hill. It is open to Congregational Delegations as well as individuals looking to build relationships and deepen their engagement in the fight for progressive social change in North America.
In 2017, there will be a special focus on issues of racial justice, including conversations on how to better organize to combat voter suppression and the staggering problem of mass incarceration in America. Hundreds of committed social justice activists from across North America will be there.
The list of 2017 speakers will be released shortly. In the meantime, check out the archive of our 2015 Consultation on Conscience, including keynote addresses by the Honorable Madeleine Albright as well as former Director of the RAC and current Ambassador-At-Large for International Religious Freedom Rabbi David Saperstein.
