Coalition Building

JCRC helped organize a coalition of religious leaders around passing a hate crimes law in Indiana.

The JCRC has led the Jewish community to create and strengthen coalitions, and to build bridges with other ethnic, civic, and faith groups to advance civil and just society. In recent years, we have worked in a coalition on hate crimes, human services, housing and evictions, immigration,  racial justice,  and other policy matters.

A leading go-to Jewish organization for other ethnic, faith, and emerging communities seeking Jewish partnership, we are also sought out by other faith clergy and civic leaders for counsel and input when they are navigating issues of relevance to the Jewish community. JCRC envisions a healthy, just, and secure democratic society where communities collaborate to enhance the quality of life for all. We work toward this vision by engaging Jews.
