Leslie Anderson, Executive Director, JCRC
As part of a nationwide effort to engage the Jewish community in protecting the electoral process, JCRC Atlanta, Congregation Etz Chaim and Congregation Shearith Israel have all partnered with the nonpartisan A More Perfect Union: The Jewish Partnership for Democracy with each group focused on different areas of civic engagement: recruiting poll workers (JCRCA), recruiting more Jewish places to be polling locations (Etz Chaim), and election protection through poll watching and legal assistance (Shearith Israel).
This is proposed as an on-going effort to bring the Jewish community together around civic values for future election cycles. Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org or 770-366-7686 if you would like to learn more about these efforts for this election or in the future.
Tuesday, Oct. 11 is the last day to register to vote and early voting runs from Oct. 17-Nov. 4th. Most metro Atlanta counties have Sunday voting, but check your county for times and locations as these vary. JCRCA has a nonpartisan webinar discussing the implementation of the new election laws available for organizational use.
JCRCA is restarting our Community Council meetings starting in January. JCRCA has been going through a strategic planning process that puts the input and consensus of the Jewish community organizations at the forefront of our work and setting goals for our communal impact at the start of the Georgia Legislative session. Please join us on Thurs., Jan. 26 at 12 p.m. at the Federation for lunch, networking and discussion. RSVP at email@example.com.
