At JOIN for Justice, we believe that stories matter. Stories create connections between people, they are how we share our history, they inspire us to act.
Last week, JOIN for Justice celebrated the importance of stories when we gathered for SHIFT: Taking Root ~ An Evening of Stories. Hosted in the inviting Cambridge, Massachusetts home of JOIN Board member Larry Bailis and his wife Susan Shevitz, SHIFT celebrated storytelling, community building and social justice with JOIN friends, alumni, guests and staff.
All of us in attendance were entertained, moved and challenged by the stories we heard, including this one from Jewish Organizing Fellowship alum Dani Moscovitch:
In addition to Dani, we enjoyed stories from Seminary Leadership Project alum Rabbi Jen Gubitz, Jewish Organizing Fellowship alum Dani Moscovitch and JOIN Director of Organizing Meir Lakein. JOIN Board member Dan Rosan served as our emcee.
