UWS Affinity Groups
On Sunday, January 26, 2017, the UWS Jewish community came together for UWSJ's teach-in with a wonderful teacher and speakers who brought us up to date on what is happening in the areas of healthcare/reproductive rights, climate change and immigration/refugees. After the speakers, people gathered in four groups to form affinity groups to work in particular areas. Now, the work continues. If you didn't already sign up for working in an affinity group at the teach-in or would like to join an additional group, consider what the groups are thinking about (Healthcare/Reproductive Rights, Climate Change, Immigration, Refugees) and sign up by clicking the link above. One of the coordinators will contact you about the group's next meeting.
