Volunteer Leaders are the foundation of Jews For A Secular Democracy (JFASD).
YOU play the key role in organizing and shaping grassroots advocacy initiatives.
OUR GOALS ARE SIMPLE YET VIRTUOUS:
We want the undue influence of religion out of government.
We defend separation of church and state through a Jewish perspective, at all levels of the U.S. local, state, and federal government.
We hold elected leaders accountable to religious neutrality on policy making.
We organize and disseminate a response to right-wing religious efforts to roll back advances on issues such as:
Secular Education For All
HOW YOU CAN HELP:
Step 2: Attend or watch the recordings of two training sessions: Communication 101 & Advocacy 101
Step 3: Coordinate with the JFASD staff on the issues YOU are passionate about!
Step 4: Mobilize grassroots activists through education and advocacy around YOUR chosen issue(s) and incorporate current events into your advocacy.
Step 5: Keep it Local and Personal! Organize specific local advocacy projects, (i.e. addressing a school, lobbying city or state legislatures, petitioning/tabling efforts)
