So much to be grateful for!
Happy to Help
Our Rental Assistance Program has expanded from one-time financial assistance to a three-month program that supports recipients and invites them to participate in Financial Wellness & Tenants’ Rights workshops. The enhanced program has increased the financial stability of our recipients but more importantly, it has increased their morale:
"Thank you so much for your help and great work! For helping people get better in the hardest situation of our lives…Thank you for financial and mental support!" – Eva D., Rental Assistance Recipient
The financial and tenant workshops are open to the community at large and are being offered at no charge. Click below to join our next session on protecting your identity.
Thankful for Donors Like You

NCJW|LA recognizes, celebrates and appreciates our new and returning Advocacy Training Project participants who attended our first sessions for 2019. We are beyond excited to have hosted two house-packed sessions with phenomenal experts presenting on the most essential tools for effective advocacy. To recap:
Session 1 on "How to Present Your Message," presented by Edina Lekovic, provided participants with skills and useful tools in public speaking, writing, and social media. Edina's informative session laid the foundation for our participants to find their voices, craft their messages, and inspire others by sharing their stories.
Session 2 on "How to Advocate for Legislation," presented by Dr. John Erickson from Planned Parenthood Los Angeles, focused on the process of turning bills into laws and how to be an effective advocate while navigating the legislative process. John's heartfelt passion and conviction to fight for women's rights and gender equality energized participants to learn the importance of tracking bills, calling elected officials, and advocating at all levels of government.
NCJW|LA's Advocacy team is inspired to continue to train advocates as they turn their passion for a community cause into action.
