WRJ Delegation at the RAC Consultation on Conscience

Join the WRJ Delegation at the Religious Action Center’s (RAC) Consultation on Conscience, April 30 - May 2, 2017. This is the Reform Movement’s premier social justice event for leadership development, community building, and the chance to make our collective voices heard. The Consultation brings together major political and social justice speakers, thought leaders, and coalition partners, along with the hundreds of committed Reform social justice activists in attendance, to learn, train, network, and advocate.

This year, the Consultation will feature special WRJ program opportunities, including:

  • Sunday pre-Consultation morning learning session for women only, to learn about women’s issues, WRJ’s social justice work, and how you can empower yourself and others to advocate on these and similar issues;
  • Sunday pre-Consultation women’s networking lunch;
  • Workshops during the Consultation featuring issues important to WRJ women;
  • Saturday evening informal opportunity for those who arrive early to gather for Havdalah.

WRJ will be considered a Delegation, which gets a discounted registration rate of $279, plus unique opportunities to come together with WRJ women attending the Consultation.
