One of our largest initiatives is our citizenship program. At the behest of Mayor Eric Garcetti, we began teaching some of the nearly half a million green card holders in Los Angeles to become U.S. citizens. We have created classes and curriculum on naturalization and provide support throughout the application process. To date, we have helped hundreds of members of our community on the path to citizenship.

Other successes include supporting health care for all and helping to sign up our uninsured neighbors to health care plans. We organized an interfaith march for solidarity in the San Fernando Valley, and we have met with our local and state representatives to ask for their support of legislative bills that can positively affect the people of our community and beyond.

Get Involved!  With your support, Judeans for Justice can grow in strength, and continue to make a tangible, positive impact on our community. It is time to wake up and take action!
