JOIN for Justice’s Jewish Organizing Fellowship is a year-long, paid community organizing training program in Boston. The Fellowship trains Jewish young adults (ages 21-30) to organize communities to effectively fight against structural injustice and inequality. JOIN supports candidates in finding paid jobs as community organizers, or partners with their existing organizing jobs

We seek Fellows who are eager to explore the connections between their unique Jewish identities and working for social change. We also seek to build a community in which all Jews, including Jews of Color, Jews with disabilities, Jews from working-class backgrounds, and transgender and gender non-conforming Jews find a supportive environment that is focused on their leadership. JOIN actively recruits and supports Jews with these identities as part of our commitment to work against oppression and center the leadership of people with marginalized identities both within and beyond our organization.

The Empower Fellowship is a track within the Jewish Organizing Fellowship for Jews who self-identify as people with disabilities, disabled, or differently-abled. Learn more here.
