Join us as we commemorate
Roe 47: Brave Past, Endangered Future

After months of planning and coordinating, we are thrilled to host our annual Roe v. Wade commemoration event. This interactive event will take place at the Council House on Thursday, January 30, from 6:00 - 8:30 PM.

Join us for a special screening of Jane, a short narrative film set in the era before Roe v. Wade. Take a look back at a time when illegal abortions and pregnancy-induced suicides were the norm. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker, and additional engaging activities.

NCJW|LA invites you to attend our 2020
Advocacy Working Group meetings

These monthly meetings are a space for community members, leaders and advocates to learn, plan, and reimagine what is possible WHEN communities join forces and advocate for the issues impacting those most in need. NCJW|LA is an open and safe place; we encourage, and welcome, and celebrate diversity and inclusivity at our meetings.

Our monthly meetings take place on the 3rd Wednesday of each month from 6:30-8:00 PM at our offices 543 N. Fairfax Ave, Los Angeles CA 90036.

The next meeting will be on Wednesday, February 19.

"I am very thankful"

Cherry Morse, a fall 2019 scholarship recipient who attends Los Angeles City College, shared her personal hurdles at the Monday, January 6, 2020 scholarship luncheon, “I have to fulfill all the roles of a student and also being a single mom of four I also work part-time, it’s very hectic for me." She goes on to thank her Edith Lawrence and Frances L. Teller Vocational Student Scholarship donors, “I am very thankful for this [scholarship] because it does help out a lot.”

The 2019 Real Cost Measure report from the United Way evidenced that as education increases, rates of struggling households drops. Seventy-four percent (74%) of households without a high school diploma fall under this measure and struggle to stay afloat compared to 18% of households with at least a bachelor degree.

NCJWǀLA recognizes the impact that college completion can have on a family. The scholarship program is one way we commit to advancing economic justice and equity for women. Eleven of the recipients were honored at a celebration attended by family, friends, and NCJW|LA supporters. 

You can contribute to our efforts to advance economic justice through higher education by making a donation.

Our ATP series focuses on today’s most applicable and productive methods of advocacy and tools for increasing civic engagement. Our workshop’s goal is to increase capacity, skills, confidence, and civic engagement of women and men advocating for social justice. Setting our workshops apart from any other is our gender-mainstreaming and human rights-based approach to our advocacy and trainings, emphasizing the global impact of both citywide and statewide legislative initiatives and changes.
