The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles launches Campus Impact Network to address antisemitism on college campuses. The program aims to support Jewish college students in LA, empower student leaders, promote a positive view of Israel, and strengthen advocacy efforts. Micro-grants will be provided for campus programs. Contact AFGoldberg@JewishLA.org for more information.
Include the Jewish Experience to Strengthen Workplace DEI for All – As organizations work on DEI initiatives, it’s important to include the Jewish experience. DEI must address rising antisemitism in the workplace and enhance outcomes for all groups. Jews are a diverse and multicultural people, and excluding them from DEI efforts is harmful. Let’s prioritize justice and equity for everyone.

Gratitude to The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles, Jewish Caucus, and State of California for their support. Financial boost will help camps rebuild and bring youth and families back into the great outdoors.”
