Winter Coat Drive
Elena Friedman, Board Member and Program Chair, is also a realtor with Lyon Real Estate. Every year they participate in a Winter Coat Drive that benefits Wind Youth Services — an organization which serves disenfranchised young people who, for so many reasons, do not have proper housing or family support and need protection from the cold. Elena will be happy to pick up any coats that could be donated to this worthy cause.

Rock the Vote
This year marks the first presidential election in 50 years without the full protection of the 1965 Voting Rights Act!
Voting is the cornerstone of our democracy. Today, NCJW’s work to promote civic engagement takes the form of Promote the Vote, Protect the Vote. This exciting initiative mobilizes NCJW sections, members, and supporters to work, in accordance with the rules governing 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations, to ensure that all eligible voters are able to vote and that every vote is counted.
SacPOST Community Day of Action
Sunday, October 16
What a mitzvah! A 4-hour commitment to save a life from slavery.
Our day of action will start with trainings on human trafficking, Civil Code section 52.6, outreach and safety protocols. After the volunteers receive the training, they will be given packets of information that include copies of Sacramento County’s version of the poster. They will then visit pre-selected businesses to talk about human trafficking and the posting law, and to encourage those businesses to post the notice.
Registration is now open. Please encourage your passionate and responsible outreach volunteers and their trusted friends who are at least 18 years of age to register by clicking here: http://bit.ly/2bHEeeQ
The deadline to register is 5 p.m. on October 5. You must pre-register in order to participate in this fall’s SacPOST day of action.
