Want An Easy Way To Make A Big Difference”?
Join the NCJW/Essex “A-List” for Advocacy And Share the Voice of America’s Largest NCJW Section.
Last Year NCJW/Essex started an “A-List for Advocacy” program created to leverage our strength as America’s largest NCJW Section and raise awareness among our community about the state and federal issues critical to our membership. This past year we ran 3 different advertisements in the New Jersey Jewish News which were designed to inform and educate readers as well as communicate our collective views. The advertisements included “Get Out and Vote” 40th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade, and Gun Violence Prevention. As members of the “A-List” you will be listed in the ads as champions of the featured issue and one of the premier NCJW/Essex “change-makers” leading the charge.
Sign up and let your voice be heard on vital issues that could include:
The “A-List” offers a powerful platform for members to unite and continue making a difference into the next generation.
