Everyone in DC should have what the Torah calls dei machsoro, resources sufficient to meet their needs. Join our Economic Justice Working Group for our first social gathering of 2023! We'll meet in person outdoors, schmooze over food and drinks, and discuss our current campaigns, and how we are working with our partners to build a DC where everyone can live and thrive.

Family is absolutely central to Judaism, from centuries of law and wisdom on raising our children to ancient guidelines for respecting our elders. All families, regardless of household income or family structure, should have the resources they need to thrive. But Mayor Bowser is proposing to cut tens of millions of dollars from the portion of the DC budget that helps pay childcare providers a fair wage.
The Mayor’s proposed budget slashed vital lifelines for residents struggling to make ends meet, including emergency rental assistance (ERAP), permanent supportive housing (PSH) for families and individuals that are homeless, and cash assistance for excluded workers. We can fund these programs if the council votes to stop the tax rate cut for wealthy investors! Call the Council on Monday, May 15 before the first vote on the budget and tell them you are counting on them to stop this tax cut and fund these essential programs.
