OCTOBER 2, 2021
NCJW Utah Section is a proud partner of the Rally for Abortion Justice happening tomorrow - Saturday, October 2nd!

NCJW board members Lisa Cohne and Sue Corth will meet members and friends who want to march together at 10:45 am on the Northwest side of the City and County Building at the corner of State Street and 400 South on Washington Square. They will have 20 posters for members to carry or make your own sign!

 
Rally begins at 11 am, march to the Capitol will start at approximately 11:45 am. Speakers will continue at the Capitol at 12:30 pm.

This is a nationwide protest of Texas’s SB 8 abortion law.  This rally is taking place ahead of the Supreme Court reconvening on October 4th.  We need to send the Supreme Court and lawmakers across this Country a clear, unified message.  We will not tolerate this attack on our reproductive rights. This will be an inclusive march, and everyone who supports women's rights is welcome!

Voyeur Roadshow Success

Thanks to all who could join us for our 2021 Membership Event featuring Nancy Borgenicht’s Voyeur Roadshow. With 80+ guests in attendance, it was the perfect way to come back together as a section after such a long hiatus. We are so appreciative of the support of the staff and leadership of the I.J. and Jeanne Wagner Jewish Community Center who so generously hosted us on the lawn and to Nancy and the incredible Roadshow cast for an amazing performance.

Supporting the Refugee Community

Scott Klepper, co-chair of Shalom Salaam Tikkun Olam (SSTO), has formed The Refugee Bike Project and is seeking in-kind contributions of bicycles and bicycle parts for refugee children living in the Bud Bailey Apartment Complex in South Salt Lake City. Already, Scott has helped to provide 40 bikes and helmets to a list of 90 youth who wish to have one. If you would like to contribute goods, cash for the purchase of parts or helmets, or time to volunteer to help fix bikes or organize their distribution, please contact Scott directly at altaklep@yahoo.com. Thank you for your consideration!

We are deep into planning our year end service project, SSTO. We will be seeking donations for Afghan asylum seekers among other vulnerable groups in our community. Collaborating with Catholic Community Services to distribute the gifts, we will amass specific donated goods in their warehouse in accordance with their strict guidelines. We will also once again be supporting other immigrant and refugee families already settled here through West High School, our long time SSTO partner. We will be sending out more information in the coming weeks about how to support this important year-end effort! Check out a video about SSTO on our website.

Our country is approaching 50 years of safe legal abortion with the anniversary of Roe v Wade.

NCJW is launching 73 Forward, a new initiative that is a communal movement for righteous deeds to ensure every person is able to make their own faith-informed decisions about their health and their bodies. 73 Forward is a movement to increase on-the-ground access to abortion care for anyone who needs it.  
  
Together, we push forward — to advocate and mobilize for access to abortion so that everyone, not just those in positions of privilege, can make their own health care decisions with dignity.   
 
Please visit www.73forward.org for information about how to support this important new project launching in October.
