Upcoming Social Justice Advocacy Events:

Social Justice Teen Fellowship
Join with other high school sophomores, juniors and seniors who share your passion for social justice in a free, nine-month fellowship! The program is a partnership of the Baltimore Jewish Council and the Elijah Cummings Youth Program. Jewish teens will be paired up with a teen student from the Elijah Cummings Youth Program, and each pair will be trained in how to develop their own podcast on a social justice issue, with help from Aaron Henkin who produces original programs and podcasts for WYPR.

To learn more, you can participate in a Zoom meeting on July 9 at 6:00 pm Eastern Time.

Register here.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
