Oct 27: ‘Presenting Your Advocacy Message’ Workshop with NCJWLA



WEST HOLLYWOOD — This National Council of Jewish Women Los Angeles’s Workshop is on Sunday, October 27 at 2 p.m. at the NCJW|LA Council House at 543 N. Fairfax Avenue.

The first session of the NCJW|LA 2019-2020 Advocacy Training Project is “Presenting Your Advocacy Message.” Attendees will learn to effectively communicate with succinct messaging.

This workshop will teach skills and tools useful in all forms of communication including speaking, writing and social media.

NCJW | LA has a proud history. The women who founded the organization are committed to bringing about social and political change to improve the quality of life for women, children and families

The creation of NCJW dates back to the 1893 World Exposition in Chicago. The male-led Jewish delegation to the exposition’s World’s Parliament of Religions asked Hannah G. Solomon to contact female leaders across the country for a concurrent Jewish Women’s Congress.

Hannah received responses from 95 women, who were then asked by the men to serve tea and coffee at their meetings. This was not what Hannah had in mind. Instead, she founded NCJW at the Jewish Women’s Congress, calling on women to shape the destinies of American lives. In 1909 Rachel Kauffman answered Hannah’s call by recruiting 15 progressive women to form the Los Angeles section of NCJW.

NCJW | LA has always been a powerful catalyst for social change. It consistently tackles the complex social challenges of the day while filling gaps in the social services needed within our community.
