JCRC: Our Work Continues | June 4 Update
Catch a webinar about reducing the number of prisoners in jail during COVID-19, how to be an ally in the effort for racial justice—and more. We’re curating virtual content from national and local experts on social and political issues.

The Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) continues to remain committed to our mission during these uncertain times, striving to advocate for just causes and ensure the security of our community. To help us fulfill our mission during COVID-19, we would like to invite you to join us and other expert leaders in various fields for ongoing webinars, talks, and online engagements about relevant social and political issues and ways to act for a more just society. 


We’d like to take a moment to highlight a couple of webinars we’re looking forward to:


Friday, June 5: We are looking forward to exploring what a Prosecutor’s Role in COVID-19 Decarceration looks likeIn response to potentially catastrophic outbreaks of COVID-19 in custodial settings, justice system stakeholders across the nation have collaborated to significantly and rapidly reduce the number of people brought into the justice system and held pretrial, although much work remains to be done. Join this conversation and understand what it looks like from the prosecutor’s perspective.


If you missed our webinar last week on how we are seeing antisemitism playing out during COVID-19, watch it here.


Wednesday, August 12: The Greater Cincinnati Foundation is hosting another session of their Racial Equity Matters Groundwater Training, due to the high demand for this learning amidst the racial injustice society has experienced. The nationally-renowned Groundwater Presentation is an introduction to racial equity that uses stories and data to illustrate the structural and cross-sector nature of racism. By examining characteristics of modern-day racial inequity, trainers introduce participants to an analysis that most find immediately helpful and relevant.


If you’re interested in learning how to be an ally in the effort for racial justice, you can learn more and be active herehere and most importantly here.
