Stand Up for Justice with the Workers Circle

Stand Up for Justice with the Workers Circle

ENGLISH CORNER, CON LINDA JIMÉNEZ – This week’s trivia question:  How are college students recruited for the Workers Circle’s Peer Educator program?

The Workers Circle is a social justice organization that powers progressive Jewish identity through Jewish cultural engagement, Yiddish language learning, multigenerational education, and social justice activism. Through contemporary cultural traditions, joyful holiday celebrations, timely social justice campaigns, vibrant Yiddishkayt, interactive educational programs and more, they connect Jewish adults, children and families of all affiliations with their cultural heritage, working to build a better and more beautiful world for all.

As part of this mission, in 2017 they created the Stand Up For Justice program. This peer-based, action-oriented program trains college students and alumni to become social justice educators, in order to give post-b’nei mitzvah teens the tools and skills to develop and launch social justice campaigns in their communities. 

This week we’re speaking with Abbe Marcus, Workers Circle’s Associate Director of Education and Experiential Learning, about this project.
